For this week’s photo I wanted something of a Fourth of July theme and this picture fits the bill. I’ve was told recently that the Walvoord Family in Nebraska gathered every year for a big reunion every Independence Day. I have also been told that their Walvoord counterparts in Wisconsin did the same.
This wonderful picture is of the Walvoords in Wisconsin. These are children of Henry and Henrietta Walvoord. The person sitting in the middle with the white hat is my great-grandfather John Garrett Walvoord . The little boy on the back corner in the hat holding the American Flag is my grandfather Randall Henry Walvoord.
I date this photo around 1912.
