Photo Number Seventy.
Secor, Il. Jan 11, 2010
Michael came to my house today with the picture of my Mother (thank-you so much) I said "the face is familiar but I can't tell who it is." I was apalled when he told me who is was!! Of course this was way before my time. It is a small world afterall..
Mom was born and raised in the Sterling area and had beautiful auburn hair. Her family later moved to Decatur and I don't know how she finally my my Dad.
I am 87 years old and when I was 9 or 10 or somewhere in that age group Mom and I and a sister and husband drove to South Dakota to visit a relative who lived in a "sod house" by the name of Katie Purcul. It was quite an adventure and took a long time to get there, as there weren't cars then like today- believe me we didn't go 65 miles an hour.
Michael seems to really enjoy this genealogy thing he has gotten into and seems very sincere in his efforts. His Mother was a long time friend and cousin. Michael plowed out my driveway a few days ago after seven inches of snow. Bet you got more-I do shovel but at 20 or so minute intervals. That shoveling is a killer you know.
Thanks again for the picture. I wish you many blessings in the new year. Many wishes, Virginia
Needless to say, I was thrilled to receive this letter! It is the first photo that has gone full circle!! I owe many thanks to my friend and fellow blogger Abra for her help! We did it..together!!
