Sepia Saturday 135–A Family Portrait Before They Leave
Sepia Saturday provides an opportunity for genealogy bloggers to share their family history through photographs.
Today’s Sepia Saturday prompt shows a photo of the “Health Fairy” with a group of children at Ithaca High School in 1920.
I’m going to be way off-theme for today’s post…unless we change the “Health Fairy” into the “Tooth Fairy.” Hmm…yes…I think I will do just that. Voila! The “Health Fairy” is now the “Tooth Fairy.”
So, in keeping with my new “Tooth Fairy” theme, I will share a photo of my Dentist Grandpa, Debs Webster and his family before they left Brazil to immigrate to the United States. If you’ve been following their story, then you’ll remember that in the last installment, they just arrived in New York City in July of 1952.
This family portrait was taken in Sao Paulo, Brazil on June 10, 1952. Included in the photo are Debs and my step-grandmother Willis, whom I introduced to you in a previous post, my mother, and my two uncles.
I promise to continue with their story as they travel across the United States by car on their way to their final destination of Southern California.
