Grandma's Photo Album Page 81 - McNeil & Vannoy in Wilkes, plus unknown child


(Left) Aunt Ila with her first child, daughter Eula Mae.

Ila was my grandmother's sister.  Her full name was Ila Margaret McNeil Vannoy (1898-1983).  She married Isaac Ransom Vannoy (1894-1979).  They operated a country store in Wilkes County.

Eula Mae became a cosmetologist.  In February 1943, Eula Mae enlisted in the Womens' Army Corps as a private in the inactive reserve.  Later in 1943, she married Atwell Sharpe (1922-1986). Atwell worked at Southern Bell for 41 years.  He also was a veteran of World War II.  They never had children.

(Right) Unknown child.  If you have any ideas about who this is, please let me know!
