The old photos that I scanned were returned this week to cousin Terry. Frances was his mother.
This is cousin Terry when he was one year old. He was an only child and I heard he was the apple of his mother’s eye (very spoiled).
This is Great Aunt Frances in High School. I am pretty sure she has a huge bow in her hair.
Chet and Frances
They owned a shoe store up in Grand Rapids Minnesota. You could get the “family” price if you came up to the store on a Sunday and probably Sunday dinner too. I recall Far Guy’s mother wanting a perfect pair of shoes and insisting that she go shopping there. It was only 85 miles.
Chicken. When I talked to Cousin Terry on the phone he said, “When we visted on a Sunday, the first stop was Aunt Emmas for chicken dinner and then it was on to Aunt Tracies where guess what was on the stove? Chicken.”
Along with the photos that were returned, I sent a few copies of photos that he may not have and a copy of the part of the family tree that he and Far Guy share. I was only able to push that generation back to 1814 in Germany and Alsace-Lorraine which was German held but some French lived there. There are not enough hours in the day to do the proper research…maybe someday.
