Leap Year Baby From Times Past

The above arrows point to my paternal great-grandparents.  Caroline Albrecht McAuley was a Leap Day baby.  She was born on February 29, 1880.  So today she is either 33 or 132 depending on how you count!

This picture was probably taken in the early 1900s from one of the bike trips that they would take as a couple.

Do you have any leap year babies in your life?  My great-grandmother is the only one that I know of.


  1. Wow! That is a really neat picture. I don’t know a single person born on leap year. But there is another blogger (Lisa from CrazyAdventuresinParenting.com) and her water broke today! So you never know! LOL!

  2. This is SO cool!!!! The archivist in me is (of course) obsessed with old photographs. Add in the fact that you know the history, and I’m downright giddy!

  3. That is such a neat picture you have! I love these old photos. I don’t have any family (that I know of) born on leap year, but I have a friend who was. And Princess C could’ve been but she came too early.
