Treasure Chest Thursday - 2 grandfathers play football
Treasure Chest Thursday
2 grandfathers play football
I was helping my wife scan some photos she was borrowing from her brother, Al. Among them was this great photo of MY grandfather, and HER grandfather, Class of 1909 and 1908, respectively, at Coon Rapids (Iowa) High School - with their football team; I assume in 1907 - since one would have graduated in May 1908 (and went off to college). We believe they are the young men on the right, front row - hers to the right, mine to the left. Small world, huh?? [Nancy's Mom had written "Paul Kinnick" and "Lynk Thomas" on the back!
Families are Forever! ;-)
