Young Rose

This photo is from the Barbee Collection at Georgetown University. It is marked on the back Rose O'Neale Greenhow.

However, this cannot be a photo of Rose. The image portrays a girl about 15 years old. When Rose was 15 in 1832, the technology did not exist to make this photo.

It could be Little Rose, but the clothing style she is wearing is too old for her when she was 15 in 1868.

If anyone can shed any light onto who this may be a photo of, please come forward.
