From Mom’s Diary… 1949 - In the fall - Kinnick family

Based on age of kids, this photo of the Kinnick family is in the fall - place unknown. There are lots of gaps in Mom’s 1949 diary entries, so did not find any matching entries, but wanted to get the photo it.

Also, as the school year began, there are mentions that Inez Shirbroun was our teacher. Jim had started Kindergarten and I was in 5th grade.

As the fall moved on, Grandpa and Grandma Kinnick moved down to “the farm.” I’m fairly certain this was the farm between Coon and Bayard where Buzz and Colleen now live. Grandma Dorothy had had her 61st birthday. (Appears Buzz and Colleen moved down there, from Harvey place, after the first of the year.)

My comments:

This appeared to also be the year that Dad built the granary up on hill south of the house, up the hill from the Cattle Shed.

Jim and I were taking piano lessons in town every Saturday afternoon. One day said that I was driving tractor for Don Shultz.

Families are Forever! ;-)
