This photo went Full Circle after Iggy found an old obituary listing relatives. I contacted Linda by email and sent the CdV’s to her last week.
I received the two Edward Welling photographs in this morning's mail. I am amazed they are is such good shape. Someone took good care of them. I will take good care of them, too. It is another link in the family history that is filled in.
I never knew Edward Welling, but I did know Alice Welling White, my grandfather's mother. I sometimes accompanied my grandfather when he went to visit her. She lived to a grand old age, and had me call her 'Nana'. She lost her vision in her later years, but would not give up her crochet. She made small afghans toward the end. Her caretakers would arrange the yarn in the color arc that she desired, and she crocheted by feel. I think that is pretty amazing. Believe it or not, I have her 1950 GE refrigerator, and it is still going strong. That's pretty amazing, too.
I am sending reimbursement for your postage.
Thank you again,
I had two copies of this photo and both were sent to Linda.
Thanks for stopping by. Do come again.
