    I’m thrilled to see this photo out there for all to see. Great picture on a really cool website. Good job Mike, and all all my relatives that have contributed.

  2. Debbie Hardman Harley says:

    The unknown baby in the 4th picture from the top of this page(the second page?) beside Carrie Kobler is probably Winnie (Winfred) Kobler. My mother is LaVergne Kobler who is the other baby in the picture. Mama said she and Winnie were the same age or close in age. She would have been about 7 months old in this picture.
    So much fun to look at these wonderful family pictures… of a truly wonderful family!
    Thanks for your work,

    just saw two corrections..Mom’s name is spelled Lorrayne and Dad’s is spelled Ruben. I love how you have the people identified. I didn’t know them until they looked a bit older.
