Farm Family, ca 1924

My mother is the littlest girl here.
Likely the photo was taken by her oldest sister, ten years older, and the brother & sister are in between.  Almost two separate groups of children, same parents, with a lost little one in between.
All of these people are gone now.  i never knew my grandfather.  He was subject to some family ridicule, i understand, because he chose to be a farmer instead of a lawyer or something requiring an education. My grandmother taught in a one-room school before marriage - teachers didn't marry back then, or at least not marry  & continue their career.
