Reminds Me of RJ’s Doll

IMG_7088

In RJ’s Journey, RJ was able to bring two possessions with her on the Oregon Trail. She chose to take her journal and her “Hannah doll.”  All I know about the doll pictured above is she belonged to my mother.  I can observe that she has wooden hands and maybe a paper mache head.  She isn’t fancily dressed like the china dolls I see on the internet.  She looks like a little pioneer girl.  My mother was born in 1917, so I’m guessing this doll is approximately 100 years old.  I don’t know what Mother called her, but let’s call her “Hannah” in honor of RJ and all the pioneer girls who settled the American West.
