MY FATHER and his Cousin – 1914

This photo was taken in 1914 and my father, Ray Marlin, was two years old.  He is standing on the chair next to his cousin, Lizzie McNabb (a cousin on the Marlin side of the family).

Within a few years, his parents, Walter E. and Dulcie (Ferrier) Marlin moved to Illinois, but they did eventually return to the Conway (Laclede County, Missouri) area when my father was about 12 or 13.

This photo was taken in Marshfield, Webster County, Missouri.  Not only do we have small original prints of this photo, but I also have an original oval photo that was blown up and framed.  The photo and original frame hang in my bedroom today.
