Wordless Wednesday: Perry Hankins' Grave

Samantha, ?, Lee and Margaret Hankins

Perry Hankins died on 1 Dec 1922 in Denver, Colorado and was buried in Earlington Cemetery in Hopkins County, Kentucky. This photo was probably taken on the day of his funeral. Perry was the son of Samantha and Lee Hankins. Margaret was his wife. The man between Samantha and Lee is unidentified but he looks enough like Lee to be one of his brothers.

Wordless Wednesday: Ralph Raymond McCauley

Ralph Raymond McCauley 7 Aug 1932–29 Jun 1933
Ralph was the youngest of the eleven children born to Will and Verda McCauley. Today is the 81st anniversary of his birth but he died before celebrating even one year of life. 

Photos of Ralph are rare. This picture of him with his mother is the only other one I've seen. 

Thanks to cousin Ann Wickliffe for finding and sharing this one.
