  1. Pat, I love your picture, wish I had the same as I have
    an almost identical buggy in my basement. Only mine
    would have been about 5 years later.

  2. Pat, my grandparents lived in Marseilles from the 1920′s until the 1980′s – that is where my father is from. Thank you for posting that picture.

  3. I really enjoy looking at these old pictures, I have a family album with old pictures but don’t have a clue who any of the people are, it is a shame. I believe it is my Davis side but not sure.

  4. Hi, love the photos and am wondering if there is any way to access old photos that may pertain to my family? They have to be out there somewhere.Any advice? Thanks,Karen
