Grandma's Photo Album Page 31 - Snyder siblings and double first cousins!

All of these photos were taken in North Carolina.  The ones on the left were taken at the farm of my grandparents (Tom and Nora Snyder) in Millers Creek, Wilkes County, N.C.  Their farmhouse is in the bottom left photo.
Top left:  The five children of Tom and Nora Snyder who lived to adulthood.  From left to right, they are lined up youngest to oldest:
  • Bette (living)
  • Ralph Lewis Snyder (1932-1996)
  • Kathy (living)
  • Carrie Mae Snyder (1926-2001)
  • James Neil Snyder (1922-1993) in his WWII Coast Guard uniform.  He made a career of the Coast Guard.
Right:  Carrie Mae Snyder (1926-2001).  I think this is her high school graduation in Millers Creek.

Bottom left:  Double first cousins and sisters!
Left to right: 
  • Clara Louise Snyder (1930-1998)

Clara and Martha are sisters.  Betty, Kathy, and Carrie are sisters,
In these two families, the fathers are brothers and the mothers are sisters.

Top left:  Archie McLean (1915-1997) and his mother, Florence Ann "Flora" Gillis McLean (about 1891 - 1951).  Flora was the mother of Kay (living) who married my mother's oldest brother.

Top right:  Carrie Snyder Disher (1926-2001), my mother.  I'm not sure if this was her high school or nursing school graduation picture.

Bottom left:  Another photo of Carrie, with her younger brother Ralph Lewis Snyder (1932-1996), on their parents' farm in Millers Creek, Wilkes County, North Carolina.

Bottom center:  Ardena Snyder Ogburn (living), my mother's first cousin, with her daughter Judy (living).
