Howard Ridgely and Otho Ridgely
Howard Ridgely (1855-1900) and his younger brother Otho Ridgely (1856-1929) pose for a studio photograph with their pet squirrel on a leash. Other Ridgely family children kept pets, and their aunt Eliza "Didy" Ridgely White Buckler (1828-1894) also had a pet squirrel, whose antics she described in her journal in 1842.
