Grandma's Photo Album - page 1 - Paul Snyder, Ralph Snyder, George Bumgarner, and others
My grandmother, Nora Bessie McNeil Snyder (1900-1992) had this old black photo album. I sat down with her one day in 1981 and took notes as she told me who was in every picture.
All of the photos on page 1 were taken in Millers Creek, Wilkes County, North Carolina, about 1947. The farmhouse belonged to my grandparents, Wiley Thomas Snyder (1892-1988) and Nora, his wife. I list the birth and death years for all deceased people. All people without dates are alive as of this post, as far as I know.
Top left photo, left to right: Paul Snyder, George Bumgarner, and Ralph Snyder (1932-1996). Ralph was my uncle, the son of Wiley Thomas and Nora Snyder. Paul and Ralph are double-first cousins. I'm not sure who George was. Uncle Ralph had a wonderful sense of humor.
