ELI AND CARRIE SHANK – in the 1920’s

scan0090fThis is my grandfather, Joseph “Eli” Shank, and his second wife, Carrie Massey Shank.  My grandmother died in 1921, and Eli remarried a couple of years later.  Carrie was a widow who had three children, and they went on to have three more.  This was taken in the yard of their farm in Phillipsburg, Missouri, sometime in the second half of the 1920’s.
