Richard Leigh Barrett (31 Jan 1895 - 3 Aug 1900) Taken about age 3 1/2, probably in Milwaukee, WI.

This picture was taken from the photo album of Richard's brother Newton. Newton had this to say about the photo:

Little Richard after Father’s death, was taken by “Uncle” Ned Millard and Aunt Minnie, childless couple in Milwaukee. They lived in an apartment near us; then moved in with his father Uncle Samuel and Aunt Mattie, and rich Aunt Lucinda Holton in their fine mansion on Grand Ave. near Pilgrim Church. This picture was probably taken in front of the 21st St. dwelling, soon after he came to them.
