As I explored another side of the family through pictures, some individuals might only be characterized as characters to others, but to me they are family, so I find their possible oddities charming in a historic way.
I had a copy of this picture for awhile but didn’t realize, until I saw another one like it from my aunt’s house, that this is not only my great grandparents but it is their wedding picture. A happy discovery.
This photo of my relatives Myrtle and Guy bears a slight resemblance to the famous picture next to it.
This is my maternal grandfather with three sisters, before his younger brother was born. I love the hats.
Here is the same grandfather older in a boy scout uniform. And then a little older still in the picture next to it.
My maternal grandmother is at the back and middle of this group of schoolchildren. Her brother is on her left, at our back right.
This is my maternal grandparents, newly married and then years later. They celebrated 70 years of marriage together before my grandpa passed.
My Grandma and Grandpa knew how to have fun, especially when it involved wearing hats.
Going back in time, here they are with their first-born, my mother.
These cute little girls are my aunt and my mother.
My great aunt and uncle decided to add on to their house, both up and down. To create a basement for their home, they lifted their house and put it on blocks. Here is a picture during the project.
Thanks for viewing these favorites of mine.
