“The Eternal Indian, sometimes called the Black Hawk Statue (dedicated in 1911), is a 48-foot sculpture by Lorado Taft located in Lowden State Park, near the city of Oregon, Illinois.”
My son Mark found my mother Marian and her brother John in the photos. My mom was born in 1912 so this photo must be about 1914.
My son Mark was in town for business and we looked at an old photo album he hadn’t seen before. You want your offspring to know who has gone before. Already there are faces in the album for whom I have no names.
But here are my father Roy and his siblings and parents. To see and older photo of the family you can click this blog post Heritage

My Father’s Day post.
Here’s a photo of our parents, Roy and Marian Hendricks. Dad is holding my sister.
My parents didn’t own a camera so a family friend must have taken this picture.
This lovely photo is in one of those awful sticky photo albums. Ugh. There must be a way to remove the photo without damaging it. Any clue?
