This was the home of Frank Berry in Faribault, Minnesota.
He was my great-grandfather, the father of my grandmother, Daisy Berry Taylor.
She gave birth to my father, Franklin Berry Taylor, and my uncle, Zenas Howland Taylor, in a room at the top of the house.
The window up there gave plenty of light.
This was Daisy.
When the two brothers, four years apart in age, had grown they were photographed in Stanley, North Dakota with their parents.
My mother, Hattie Loretta Hylland, and dad were married in 1927.
This may have been their wedding picture.
They were so serious!
I like this next one, which I call their Bonnie and Clyde photograph.
They honeymooned for several months on what was called The Cooper Ranch, south of Stanley.
Many years later someone shot a picture of the by then rundown and overgrown ranch house.
But when they spent that year there, apparently the days were idyllic.
Good times, long, long ago.
