#38 Moore Boys

My grandmother Helen was an only child. She had three first cousins on her mother’s side. On her father’s side, she had nine first cousins, but I don’t think she knew any of them. She doesn’t seem to have had much contact with his side of the family, and he died in 1928 when she was about 16.

Today, I’d like to post some picture’s of Ma’s first cousins on her mom’s side, Lee, Harry, and Glenn Moore, the sons of her uncle Glenn “Fred” Moore. Lee was born on January 5, 1913 in Hartford, Van Buren, Michigan, Harry was born on December 25, 1914, and Glenn III was born on June 20, 1922 in New Buffalo, Michigan.

Above:  Nela and Glenn Moore.  Glenn worked for the railroad for many years.  Apparently, he was also very short.  🙂

Above:  Pine Grove Cemetery, New Buffalo, Michigan.  The F. before Glenn’s name stands for Fred, which was his father’s first name, which I’ve heard is what the guys in the railroad yard used to call Glenn.
