My Maternal Grandfather was born on September 4,1887.
Judd Dewitt Van Sickle. Durand, Illinois
John Christopher Van Sickle 1851–1927and Lucy Maria Judd Van Sickle 1850–1915 were his parents. He was the one of their seven children, to reach full adulthood, passing in 1975.
The inscription on the back of his baby photo is in my mother’s hand.
Cute baby……dashing young man!!!!
Beautiful pictures, you are very fortunate to have all this family history.
Thank you, Carrie. Yes, I am fortunate. You’re right!
What a wonderful treasure to have in your family album, Ruth!
A lovely heirloom photo. I also love the garment your maternal grandfather is wearing in his baby photo.
Yes the baby dress is so lovely. Thank you for looking and writing nice comments.
Love to see the evolution from baby to man. What was his profession? (Curious about the story of the smock he is wearing over his clothes…)
