Family Album

My Folks
This is me and my Mom!

 One of my most favorite photos of all time!
My mother Sharon and dad Tom, with my little brother Tommy.
Taken in Richardson, TX in the early 70s.

 Mom & Dad

(my mom)

The Corrigans
The Corrigans are from my fraternal Grandmother's side of the family.  Concentrated in Oskaloosa, Iowa.

This is a picture of my Great Grandmother Frances Corrigan Anderson and her sisters. She is the one on the bottom left.
From left to right, Frances, Anna, Cecilia, and Theresa Corrigan

Anna and Celia Corrigan.  Anna was born in 1884 and Celia in 1885.

This is the Corrigan Family.  This is obviously a christening.  The man in the top row on the right is Patrick David Corrigan, next to him is Elizabeth Golden.  I am guessing that the man on the far left is Frank Corrigan and his wife Catherine holding the baby.  I think my Great Grandmother is one of the girls in the picture, Maybe the one standing in the front, but I am not sure, and the back of the photo just says "Corrigans".

 Frank Corrigan, (would be my Great Great Grandfather)  I like everything about this photograph!  It is amazing to see how they are actually digging the ditch by hand.

 This photo is actually on tin. 
Catherine M. Golden (born 1861) and father, Jacob Henry Golden, (born 1834)
 Patrick David Corrigan and his second wife.  Not sure of her name at the moment.

Catherine Corrigan

The back of this photo is noted "Uncle Frank Johnson, Grandpa Corrigan "Patrick David", Dad (Thurman Ross Anderson), Mom (Catherine Corrigan), Calvin (Grandma's brother), couple friends, unknown, and Alice"  Alice Anderson (Johnson) is my grandmother, and she is the little girl in the foreground.  Her mother, Frances is holding the baby.  My Grandmother was born in 1913, so I am putting this photo at 1916 in Oskaloosa, Iowa.

No idea who this is, but hopefully with some research I can figure it out.  This is such a quirky photo! She is wrapped in fur, standing in the snow, posed against a tree.  The notation says, "Some Jew - big fat feet"...You got to appreciate such an odd photo!

Ozzie Nevins
This is the husband of Sarah (Sadie) Guthrie Nevins. Sadie is the daughter of  Elizabeth Golden Guthrie and Andrew Guthrie.

This is a picture of Maude Beryl Guthrie McDowell holding her first born, Leroy McDowell. On her right is her mother Elizabeth Golden Guthrie, and the extreme right is her grandmother Sarah Warden.  

These are some photos from my mom's side of the family.

Andrew Anderson and his wife, Anna Peterson.  They would be my great grandparents.  He was born in Denmark in 1874, she was born in South Dakota in 1879.

My Grandma Esther on the left and her identical twin sister, Violet on the left.  They look to be in their late teens, having the classic "flapper" haircut style.

Esther, Gladys, and Violet Anderson
