So-and-so DOES seem to have brown hair (at least as much as a black-and-white photo can reveal) and he does have a slender build. Photos are part of what brings a person to life for me and really make them a part of the bigger story of my family history.
Troy Pannell b. 1919 Dad's uncle

Luke Ladell Bailey b. 1895 and Willie Eugene Bailey (Hall) b. 1893  - my Dad's grandparents

My Uncle Pete, my Grandma Lois (Pannell/Allen/Bailey), and my Dad

My Grandma Sanders (on Mom's side) b. 1920, my snazzy-looking great-uncle Bert Sanders b. 1897, and Bertha 

From my biological side of the family: Lillie Belle Crouch (Graves) and  Barbara Carter (Crouch)
