Aunt Byrd at age ten.

Aunt Byrd as a young woman. She was Uncle Owen's wife.They did not have any children . After Mimi's Mother died Uncle Owen and Aunt Byrd helped raise Mimi and her sister.
Mr. & Mrs Richards. These are Byrd's parents. As I am the history buff in the family I know very little about either.
The kitty justice is history becomes lost unless some written history can be located.

At least you have these photos. It is up to us to write things down NOW!! for those who come after. I find it sad when I go to the thrift and find very old pictures--I always wonder about the, Seldom is any information written on the back. Sometimes I buy a few and put them in frames.

Have you ever tried Ancestry.com ? You have to pay to access it but it is soooo worth it.

My Mother was good about writing on the back of photos. When you do not put names and dates on the back of photos because you think you will remember, hundred years down the road no one knows who the people are or when the photo was taken. Peace

That is a good one to remember. Getting better everyday. It is funny it takes only a day to put you down but serveral days to mend back. Peace
