My Baby Photo

I am the cute little baby in the arms of my mother next to my father.  The photo was taken in probably March or April of 1969.  For a long time, I thought all of my baby photos had been lost as we moved around a lot when I was a child but a few years ago I found this photo in some of my grandmothers photos.  My dad is missing some of his head but my family has never been known for their great photography abilities!

I actually found other photos along with this one that show me as a very small child but this is my favorite and the earliest known photo of me as a baby.  The others are of my as a toddler and my sister as a baby!

(By the way, these few photos aren’t the only photos of me as a child, I have many photos of my childhood.  I just didn’t have any until I was about 4-5 before I found these.)

The photos in my unknown photo collection could come from either my mother’s family (Treat, Lawrence, and related family lines) or my father’s family (Thompson, Stout, and related family lines).

Also, my Great-Aunt Mabel (Stout) Parsons was a school teacher in the Springdale schools for many years so some of the photos may be of her students.

Grandpa Stout at the Canning Company

I think that this photo is of Grandpa Stout in the center of the photo on the left. I don’t know who the other men are but I would think it likely that they are employees in the canning company.

The family story is that Grandpa Stout owned the canning company during the war and that new regulations after the war requiring upgrades to the factory put him out of business.

I have now seen a document that shows that Grandpa rented a warehouse during the period at the end of World War II.
