All My Dead People

Yesterday was Halloween.  It is said it is the one day a year that the dead can rise.  In Catholicism, today is All Saint’s Day.  What I’m saying is that between 10/31 and 11/2 it’s all about the dead folks.  So I’m sharing some personal Dead Folks with you all.  Also I love old pictures.

These sexy people are my Great-Grandparents born in the 1850’s. This is a scan of a Tin Picture. Don’t ya love their beach attire?

Looking closely at this picture I noticed that my Mother had the same type of feet as her Grandmother.  Weird.

This is my Grandmother and her sister taken about 1889. Also scanned from a Tin Photo.

These handsome folks are my Great-Great Grandparents. This was taken sometime in the late  1800’s.

This is my Step-Great Grandfather. His name was Mickey and the baby he’s holding…that’s his daughter. He was Tony Randall before it was cool to be Tony Randall.

This Tin picture is of my Grandmother, Somebody I don’t know that kind of looks like Rosie O’Donnell and my Great-Aunt.

This is one of my favorite pictures. It’s my Great-Aunt and some of her friends. I call it the Suffragist Photo. It was taken in the early 20th Century I”m thinking about 1910. They aren’t actually Suffragists but I love their style!

And for my last photo of the no longer living….


I know that these are pictures of people I’m related too but I have no idea who they are.  It’s always bothered me that I have pictures of people I don’t know but that I feel I should know.  The man sitting on the right kind of looks like my Great-Grandfather.  Maybe it’s his brother?  I should have asked him when he came back for Halloween.

Oh well…maybe next year.
