I created this BLOG for my MATHIS/MATHEWS AND SMITH Family Lines. Although these lines in my tree are a rich part of my History, they are a mystery to me. What I thought I knew is not so. I plan to put the puzzle together one Branch at a time!!
the photo looks great!
Handsome man, the restoration looks great.
Great restoration and your granddad was a handsome man.
Great photo. Is this World War II? Korea? What branch of service was he in? I read a wonderful book about African American Service men in WWII - Black Fire, a passionate recollection of the injustices so many African Americans suffered when trying to serve their country and how one unit fought back. Can't recall the author, but I met him at a writing class. I'm sure Amazon would have it. He was a wonderful inspiration to writing our stories, whatever they may be!
