I am becoming a blogger to document my ancestors journey as I answer / recognize their pokes, prods and revelations.
I don't remember ever seeing this picture before. My Dad, Willis B. Williams, is in uniform with his sister, Christina Burkette aka Aunt Peaches. From other pictures I've seen I believe the two men behind my Dad are his brothers and the older woman is their grandmother. At his point in his life my Dad lived in Buffalo NY but he was from Detroit MI, so I'm guessing he was on leave in Detroit.
My mother, Evelyn O. Brown (2nd from left, seated) in a school club photo from Frosdick Masten High School, Buffalo NY. She has maintained friendships with Julia Bush (Bolden), (1st left, seated), Brontie Blenman (center seated) and Harriet (far right, seated.)
I have always loved this picture; in it I see innocence, hope for the future, and friendship.
