The Kemptgen girls: Lucy, Margot, mystery girl, & Helen

Helen was my grandmother. Lucy and Margot were her older sisters. I have no idea who the other girl is, but since she appears in many of the photos from this era (around 1918) and bears a family resemblance, perhaps she is a cousin.

Based on the other photos in the album, they were dressed up for a tea party and a visit from the Watels, my great-great grandparents, who emigrated to America from Poland where they were called Watelevich (or some alternate spelling lost to history).

That seems so mysterious. It would be great fodder for a mystery screenplay. All the different storylines of whom this mysterious person might be now, and why the name has been forgotton to time. Seems you already have some great props or a short.
