A Bucket Full of Fun

This little cutie is identified as Dorothy Darling. She was born on 24 May 1899 in Ipswich, Massachusetts to Edward L. Darling and Mabel L. Barker. She was their only child. Her father was a photographer and no doubt snapped this photo of his darling little Dorothy in November of 1899. It won a prize from the Boston Daily Post and was on the front page of the paper titled “Bucket Full of Fun.” She married Howard MacCharles and appears to have only one child named Priscilla, born about 1931. Dorothy died July 20, 1985 and is buried in the Old Burying Ground in Ipswich, Massachusetts. Priscilla married M. Henry Rice, Jr. in 1953. Any descendants out there?
