working together- is what the firemen did for the veterans and others who gathered here for the service. They raked and gathered the leaves so the area would be pristine for the event. shared with James' WEEKEND REFLECTIONS #372gathered from around the world my Veteran's Day post can be seen here.
Today this family would be called a blended family, but in the late 1930s, they were just a family. The adults are the Kern siblings (including my mom in white clothes and my dad in the middle) with their spouses, mother and their step-father. The three children are Duckworth siblings. Grandpa Kern died at age 41 leaving seven children. I knew only my grandpa Duckworth. Two Kern brothers were not present for the taking of the picture. Judging from the size of the three younger siblings, I was born two years after this. sharing with Jane's VINTAGE WEEKLY Any bloggers who have vintage photos, please join us in sharing them!
