Remembering Our Patriots

These young men are not forgotten, even though their names are not known to me. They are probably sons or sweethearts of my Richards or Proffitt family, as they were tucked away with my Great-aunt Dewey Richards' and Louise Richards Lee Proffitt's collection of family pictures. Dewey, born in 1898, never married. One of these young men may have been her sweetheart. When Dewey died, she left all of her belongings with her younger sister, Louise, who cared for her in her later years. Or one or two of them could be Louise's brother-in-laws, one of the Proffitt boys.





On the back of this one "This is the cutest boy in the world."

And finally, this one.
