photos from my father's youth (and before) found in my now-abandoned childhood home
My father's mother's father, William Deschler, in a photo taken circa 1905 (which is the year he died). I base this on the age of his daughter in similarly-posed photos.
My father's mother Katherine with her brother Edward. If this was taken in 1905, she was 15 years old.
My father circa 1940 with various young women and a younger boy. I suspect they're all related, but they must be cousins on his mother's side since he was estranged from his half-siblings and late father's family and was otherwise an only child.
My father (left) with some chums in World War II, probably in France.
My father (left) with a friend in World War II, probably in France. The friend might be the Finnish lad who taught him some Finnish (which my father found very easy to pronounce). If so, this guy died shortly thereafter in a German artillery barrage.
This looks like rough camping during WWII. Maybe it'as in Europe or maybe Ft. Campbell Kentucky.
My father (reminding me of my brother Don) home from the war (probably only temporarily on leave).
