For some reason I was never really interested in getting a car as a young teenager.
I was dating my first husband and he had a great old 1948 Ford Coupe that was fun to drive in. My sister had a cute little Volkswagon that she would drive us around in.
I do not really remember my first car. It would of been bought by my hubby #1 and me.
It would of been used and bought from the car lot that was owned by friend's father.
Now my father loved cars. He had many cars and was always coming home with a new car.
Here are two of his early cars. Bottom car is while they were living in Texas. License plate looks like it has a 194?.
First car is in Duluth and maybe and is a late 1960's Saab.
This is only two of the many cars my dad owned in his life time. Someday would love to see how many I could find photos of and put in an album.
Here are three wonderful vintage photos in my family photo collection. I have no idea who these people are.
Are they on my mother's side or my father's side. I can not even guess that much for sure.
First picture is probably on my mother's side of the family because it is marked Sparta Wisconsin. My father's mother's family was in Wisconsin but not for long.
Richardson Bros Photographers Sparta Wisconsin
Next picture is of an adorable little barefoot girl. I have no idea the time period of this picture. Maybe early 1900's to 1930's.
Last photo is a real photo postcard of mother and child. Sometime between 1907 to 1914 because of divided back of the post card.

Tonight I decided to work on her father Nathan Grimes at www.ancestry.com and by finding him in the census the hints came up finding her.
In 1840 she is living in Oxford, Grafton County, New Hampshire. Living with her is her five daughters. Three under age 5 and 2 between the ages of 10 to 14. Here two sons George and John Alonzo are not listed with the family. Who are they living with.
I wish this census would tell us her occupation. How did she support herself and her family.
Her father and family are living in the same town at this time. They are on page 9 of 18 while she is on page 7 of 18.
The 1850 census has her living in Royalston, Worchester, Massachusetts with daughter Sally Rebecca who is called Rebecca in this census. Will have to search further who is living near her.
Always another question to think about and another fact to try and figure out. One great hunt after another. That is what makes it alls so intriquing.
Take a peek at their clothing. Young man second child from the right is in a sailor outfit. The hats the bonnets are amazing. There is young boy and girl second row and she is holding on to his arm. Probably her brother.
The back is unused except for a question mark some one wrote. The stamp area is marked by Velox around it with triangles dates it 1909 to 1914.
I love a good mystery .. may not be able to solve this positively but think I am on the right track...
