That’s my grandfather on the left-Judd Dewitt Van Sickle. My mother Marian Van Sickle, holding a hat. She looks about 14 (born in 1912) No notes identifying the others in the photo.Durand, Illinois.
From my Grandmother’s album. Durand Illinois. My mother Marian with her brothers Robert (4) and John (8). Her 6th birthday would be in the coming September.
My grandfather Judd DeWitt VanSickle in the middle hugging his youngest son, my Uncle Robert. My grandmother Charlotte is sporting the sash, I believe. I calculate the date as Uncle Robert was born in 1914 and to me he looks about ten in this photo. Durand, Illinois or perhaps on vacation in the Wisconsin Dells.
