Both were hard workers. My Great Grampa was a farmer/logger. I never knew him. My Grampa Williamson died from a heart attack at 57 when we were cleaning stalls. I was pretty young so didnt get to know him to well though I only remember him getting stearn with me once. WW2 Marine Vet.

I never thought of that. Seems I have another pic of his lily's many years later so he must've grown them awhile.

Nice story and great pictures. 

Wish I knew the whole story. I did find a small booklet that shoes Smith history.  I will try to read it tomorrow.  From what I remember the whole family moved from Missouri to California then Great Grampa Guy brought the family to Oregon. I never met him that I remember and can only remember going to his farm once but was to young to understand.

Ya know stories like these are what life is all about, my grand dad died in ‘49, I have a pic of him, my old man and me in ‘48, I also have a letter he sent me in March of ‘48 with two dollars in it, I’ve always had the letter but 10 years ago I went to a coin store and bought two period  time wise 1 dollar bills and put them with the letter to pass on to my kids as something from their great grand dad.
