I only have a couple of photos of my ancestors “dressed up.” I can’t even say for sure if this was Halloween or some other costume party.
But, here are the photos I have.
The tall guy wrapped in a blanket, with feathers on his head is my maternal grandfather, Joseph A. Milne. I guess he was supposed to be an Indian. I don’t recognize any of the other people in this photo. His wife, my grandmother, is not in this picture. Is she taking the photo? Or, is this prior to their marriage? He was 23 when they married, so it could be. I cannot tell how old Joseph is in these photos. Comparing to other pictures I have of him, he appears to be in his 20’s here. Guess I’ll never know.
Share your ancestor dress up photos or stories with me, either in a comment or on your own blog post.
Happy hunting….or should I say Happy Halloween?
