Throwback Thursday – Ancestor Pictures

Tonight I was looking through some old pictures and found two ancestor pictures that I have not shared before.

I decided that I would share them tonight. I am still a bit time-lagged as I am still virtually teaching a course in Germany, so this will be a short post.

Jacob Yoder, Mattie Miller, Great Grandparents, ancestors, amish, mennoniteThe first is a picture of my Great Grandparents Jacob Yoder and Mattie Miller. They both grew up as Amish, but later were Mennonites.

I have always liked this picture, especially Jacob’s hair. I also really like Mattie’s smile.

ancestors, braman, flora della, 2G GrandmaThis picture is of my 2nd Great Grandmother Flora Della Beck Braman. The file information for the picture just said Grandma Braman. I knew it was not my Dad’s Grandma as she was only about 30 years old when she passed away. So, it had to be my Grandfather’s Grandma who lived into her 90’s.
