|COUSINS ON A HAYSTACK |
Kansas ~ 100 years ago
Looking into the sun ~ or into the future?!
|READY FOR A HAYRIDE|
My Great - Uncle Harry (1887 - 1940)
pretending that the wagon needs gas. Haha!
And his wife, Great - Aunt Ethel, top left.
In the photo above, their daughter Mildred (b 1913)
sits at the very top of the haystack.
More about Harry Louis Heideman, older brother
Sadly, his obituary:
|According to the family apocrypha, |
Harry's last words were “Don’t blame the boy”
[the 16 year old driver who didn’t see him].
| Harry's middle name “Louis”|
was for his father’s younger brother
Louis Heideman (1869 - 1884)
who died young in a drowning accident.
Here is Great - great Uncle Louis’s
fancy calling card — all the rage in those days!
