Our lens focuses this time on Larry's paternal great grandparents, George and Matilda. They were Papa Frank's parents. Our records show that George was a doctor, but do not indicate his specialty (medicine, philosophy, other). It is known that both he and Matilda were ordained Methodist ministers. George was born July 7, 1842, near Pendleton, NY, and died in December, 1926, at Aldine, TX. Matilda was born July 24, 1849, in Hocult, Sweden, and died March 20, 1909, in Oldsburg, KS. The couple was married August 14, 1866, in Holton, KS. It is thought this photo was taken at the time of their wedding or soon after. (Our thanks to Larry's mother, Julia, for providing the information used in this caption.)
