Throwback Thursday - October 29, 2015

There aren't any more pictures of Charlotte growing up.  Nor are there any other pictures of her grandfather, John.  But there is one of her grandmother, Gertrude.

This photo was taken ca. 1905.  Grandfather John died not long after Charlotte was born in 1904, and Gertrude followed him not long after that.  They were both in their 70s by then - long lives for that time.

Charlotte's young adult life is kind of a mystery.  But there is a story I am not going to share on the internet for everyone, everywhere, forever, to read.  That story will be shared with my immediate family for the sake of family history.  We'll just skip it here and get right to the important parts.

Charlotte met Clayton and married him in Santa Monica, California in 1935.  Clayton was born in Canada on May 7, 1901.  He became a nationalized citizen of the US in 1934.  They were together for the rest of their lives.

See you next Thursday!
