Reminds Me of RJ’s Doll


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.
