Oh it's been a while since I have been here and life has really gotten in the way of my family searches. I think I am back on track now and motivated! That is key, motivation. My mom found an envelope of old photo's from my Burke side of the family in Henry Co. Ohio. What a great find!
The image above is of my Great Grandfather Cecil Burke and two others Bob Robinson and John Donovan standing outside the drug store where they worked in Deshler, Ohio. If anyone knows the name of the store, please let me know.
I love this photo. What great hair these young men had back then. My GG Cecil married Nora Herman and her father Adolph Henry Herman and his brother in law Lee Barnes once owned the Ross House which was a popular railroad stopping spot in 1914. It burned down in 1919. This is according to writing on the back of a newspaper photo in the Toledo Magazine July 30-August 5, 1989. If you know anything about the Ross House, I would love to hear it!
