Sharing Saturday – A Family Portrait

Today, I would like to share this beautiful family portrait with everyone. It is a three generational photograph of the John Michael McCormack family.

The John Michael McCormacks - 1924

The John Michael McCormacks – 1924 [1]

From left to right; John Michael McCormack (sitting in chair), Ethel Davis McCormack, Gerald “Bum” McCormack (leaning on his grandfather), Henry Davis McCormack, James Archer McCormack (sitting), Henry Peacock McCormack, Gertrude “Betty” Jeanette McCormack, Robert Michael McCormack (sitting on lap of grandmother), Gertrude Peacock McCormack.

The best date that I have is 1924. My best guess is sometime in late summer 1924. The baby, Robert Michael McCormack, sitting on the lap of his grandmother, was born late Jan 1924. I am also guessing that the picture was taken somewhere in Reno, Nevada. That’s because the McCormack family lived in Reno in 1920s.

Thanks for stopping by!
