One thought on “Aaron Lee Vining – 2nd oldest son of James M. Vining Jr.

  1. After seeing the Vining laundry photo, I was wondering if my great-grandmother, Nancy Jane (Babcock) Vining might have worked there in 1910. Then I rechecked the census where it said she was a laundress and it said establishment where works: at home. The woman next door also listed laundress as her occupation.

    There weren’t many occupations available, I imagine, for older women with school-age children at home.
