More chickens

Scan 1

Going through old photos again and what do I come across?

More chickens. This time they’re on the Robertson side of my family.

This photo of my aunt, Barbara Carol Robertson, was taken in the 1930s on Burg Street on the outskirts of Granville, Ohio.

Barbara had what we call these days developmental disabilities. She was non-verbal until her death at age 66. But her family loved her and she lived at home until my grandmother, Ethel Robertson, died at age 92.

Barbara struggled with all kinds of things throughout her life, but she always loved animals and they always loved her.

Another recurring themes in my family photo collection is dogs. No matter what side of my family, or which family member is represented, there usually is a dog in the photo.

Here is Barbara with two of them, identified as Jara and Blackstone, on Burg Street in Granville.
