Flashback Friday

This is one of my favorite old photos of my great grandma, Marbel, from my grandfather’s side of the family. Marbel is sitting on the running board of the car.

She was one of eight children, born in 1896 in Missouri. Marbel and her husband John moved to Ohio from Pennsylvania around 1920 and only had two children (notable because so many of my other ancestors had a lot of kids). They had a 50th wedding anniversary together, which I think is just amazing.

I don’t have a lot of details on Marbel, her likes and dislikes. I love this photo because it seems to contain a lot of personality.
