This picture is with their first five children. The oldest standing died in 1917, the little girl leaning on her fathers knee died in 1913. The girl standing center, my mother, died in 1978. They raised 10 children to adulthood until 1940 when Ruby died. She is the little girl setting in the lower middle. Goldman is the baby.
I am so proud of this old picture. It is the only picture that I have of Beulah who died in 1913.
