My Friday’s Fences entry this week is an old family photo.
These are two of my first cousins on my dad’s side of the family. There’s no date on the picture, but I would guess it was taken around 1930 or 1931. And perhaps on a Sunday, since the boys are all dressed up, including ties.
On the left is Allie Hinton, who was born around 1924. He passed away in 2006 at the age of 82.
The little fella on the right is his brother, Thomas Henry. Sadly, Thomas only lived to be about six years old and died in 1934. I’m not sure of the reason for his death. My sister thinks she recalls hearing that he had diptheria.
A third son, Edwin, was born to Allie and Thomas’s parents in 1936. But the family would experience another tragedy in 1953, when Edwin was killed in a car accident.
This picture was taken in my home town of Bacon’s Castle, and in the background is a little country store that I remember well. It was demolished in 2008.
Linking up to Friday’s Fences.
