Sibling Saturday - My Aunts and Uncles

This may come as a shocker to some individuals, but my Dad has 14 siblings. Yes, 14.

Dear old Grandad, who died 5 years before I was born, was married three time. He outlived his first two wives, and had children with all three.

It may seem strange to some, but I was a mid-century baby, and my Grandad was born in 1866. Yes, you read that correctly. 1866. So, my Dad's oldest sibling was actually 1 year older than my Grandma!

I thought it would be fun to try to find photographs of as many of these individuals as I could. So here goes! [I forewarn you that some were never photographed.]

The discrepancies in the spelling of their last name is as written. The children changed the spelling of their last name, adding an "e" on the end of the surname, after my grandfather's death.
As you can see, from those lacking death dates, there aren't many of this generation left. It is with deep respect, honor, and love I share them with you today.
