(My Aunt Kathryn was married to my mother Marian’s brother John Rowley Van Sickle)
I texted my cousin Andrew to ask permission to post and he sent to me to his Uncle John B who has the original photo. Two memories cousin John has is that “Auntie lived with them and breathed her last at Christmas.” “I remember a ride from Freeport to Durand with her last surviving hen with us in the back seat.”A
nd Grandma lived “long snd lordly in North Rockford convalescent hospital for 12 years with her Bible disbound through leafing”
My paternal grandfather Floyd M. Hendricks born in 1892 in Pawnee, Illinois, is seated on the right with the line drawn to him. I see baseball gloves. They look to be a serious group of men.
John Rowley Van Sickle. 1910-2004
My mother’s elder brother. My Uncle John.
Seated on my Grandmother Charlotte Rowley Van Sickle
Durand Illinois about 1916. The only people I can identify are my maternal grandparents. These two photos are next to one another in my Grandmother’s Album.
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.
Not sure why the info on the back says two years 1862–63 for death date unless it’s an approximation?.
Katherine is from my father’s mother’s line. I wish I knew more.
I don’t see any family resemblance.
And my grandmother Charlotte is standing on the left, next to my Uncle Robert(b 1914), who is holding the dog. Aunt Edna is in the backseat and her husband, Uncle Edgar, is seated on the running board. Durand Illinois
Mary Alta Kerr Hendricks on the right. My father’s mother. Don’t know who the other two women are. Lincoln, Illinois.
