I can’t remember which cemetery this gravestone was in, but I know that it was in Crawford county, Iowa.
Henry Ehlers was married to Minnie Hattery, a sister to my great-great grandmother, Ella Jane Hattery Edwards Rickman Proffitt Kryselmier

    Wow, is all that her name? My mother was given almost that many names when she was born — all the names they had left over, because she was the last child.ReplyCancel

This is the mustering out payment, which my grandfather, Alphonso J. Thornton, Jr., received when he was discharged from the Marine Corps after World War II.

    I’ve never seen a “mustering out payment” before, and never thought about what that meant. That’s probably where the phrase “pass muster” comes from.ReplyCancel

    Very nice of you to research your husband’s line as well as your own. Is he interested in genealogy also?ReplyCancel

    He’s interested in what I find, but he doesn’t actually do any of the research. :)

This is my husband’s great-grandfather, Clyde Cleveland Davidson (1888-1971) and his horses, Brownie and Cutie.  He lived in Tonganoxie, Leavenworth county, Kansas.

    This picture was taken by Ola Louise Davidson Weeks at the Davidson home, 740 Ash Street, North Lawrence, KS. Grandpa Davidson was hired by North Lawrence truck gardeners to plow their sandy fields with his horses. The horses hooves would keep sand from packing down hard so the gardeners could plant their Strawberries, early Spring vegetable crops,
    and especially the mellons. Brownie and Cutie were very well trained, too. (Notice Mom’s shadow between the horses.) Loved this time in Grandpa & Grandma’s life. Elizabeth & Nick Woods.ReplyCancel

    It’s exciting to see relatives commenting on this photo–they know who took this picture, and they can still hear grandpa’s voice. They are lucky.ReplyCancel
