Meet The Family
The summer after Arthur and Addie were married, they went to Clear Lake, Iowa so Addie could meet the family. There’s nothing written on this picture, but that’s Addie in front on the left. Perhaps this was a picnic for family and friends to welcome Addie.
I don’t know if Addie had done much fishing before, but she manage to help her father-in-law, William, with the ‘catch of the day.
We know that Arthur has always been a fisherman
Twenty years later Arthur took his daughter, Ruth to Iowa and Minnesota to meet his family. She visited with her grandfather (William) in his yard…
…visited her Uncle Will (George William Gilmore) at the drugstore where he worked…
…and met her great-uncle John (Williams brother).
The trip also took them to Minnesota to meet Roselle and his family (Arthur’s brother) in Columbia Heights, Minnesota…
and then to Tamarack, Minnesota to meet Aunt Mary (Arthur’s sister) and her family.
Bessie and Leon were close to Ruth’s age.
