This is my Uncle Michael dressed for Prom. His was the third child after my dad and third to last of my Grandparents large family. He was also unfortunately the first to pass, in 1993.

We’ll miss you, Grandma!

Enjoy the time you have and ask questions while you can!

Today is the 66th anniversary of my grandparents wedding. On January 18, 1947 they married at the home of my Great Aunt Rachel (York) Elliot in Palestine Township, Bradley Co., Arkansas.
This is a shot of their 25th Anniversary party at their home in Detroit, Michigan. They were married 41 years and raised 8 children before Grandpa died in 1988.

I’ve been a bit bogged down with deadlines and the creeping ick that seems to be common this time of year… but I didn’t want to miss Wordless Wednesday. And Grandma Trotter has been on my mind lately.
These are my grandparents Elnora (York) and Levie Trotter enjoying the swings at a Trotter-Johnson picnic outside of Potter Park Zoo in Lansing, Michigan in 1980 or 1981. It’s a bit fuzzy but it brings back fond memories.

I’ve been scrounging through photos lately and I keep coming back to this set. I don’t know who everyone in the pictures is but these were taken around my Great Aunt Rachel (York) Elliot’s funeral in 1971 and the majority of the men are York brothers and in-laws.
Can any Yorks/Trotters or other Bradley County folk recognize any of my unknowns? Or, for that matter, correct our identifications?
Between Dad & I, we think we have identified…
Picture 2 (L to R): Arverse York, Preston York, UNKNOWN, Herman York, Ernest York, UNKNOWN, and UNKNOWN
Picture 3 (L to R): Herman York, Ernest York, UNKNOWN, UNKNOWN, and UNKNOWN

I’m the product of a two child household so the concept of a Christmas for a family of 10 (8 kids) is a bit foreign. Check out this tree… to my eyes the presents go on forever. This is taken in my grandparents home in Detroit, Michigan during Christmas of 1971.
Happy hunting and happy holidays!
