This isn't really wordless. Thanks to my cousin Helen Jean, this is a picture of my husband mother, Lois and her brother Charles circa 1924


  1. Hi Claudia,

    The name Claudia goes way back in our family. My sister was named Claudia fter our aunt Claudia and our aunt was so named after her aunt and on and on it went. It is such a pretty name.



  2. What an adorable picture! I love the mischievous smile on his face, and her look of pure toddler joy :)

  3. Love the photo! Very cute children.

  6. What a sweet picture, and so many nice details, such as how their feet are posed.

  7. Hey I own and I am currently looking for information on Thomas Mulroy and Catherine Dowd.

    The name Owen is rare with the last name Mulroy and some of them came from County Mayo. I do know Thomas was born in Swinford, Mayo, Ireland. He was very close to my Mulroy family in the Westport, Northport and Barnastang area. I have a cousin in Ireland that lives in Westport that works with me. His great, great grandfather Anthony Mulroy had a son Owen so we are VERY interested in Thomas and his wife and children.

    I would love to talk to you about it.

  8. Thanks for posting this very cute photo! I always enjoy looking at the background, the chair, etc., as well as the kids in the pic!

    Bill ;-)
