Great Grandma Johnson

Genetics are very, very strange.  I showed it to junior, and she asked if I had any later pics of great grandma so she can see what she'll look like when she's older.

Yeah, I don't know what's up with that.  If I got the story correct, the photo originally ran in the Denver newspaper.  The other UW guy on the left contacted them sometime in the '70s to get some copies of the photo, and then forwarded one on to my grandpa. I was just happy to have an "action shot".    I also have a pic of grandpa in his UW letter sweater and my brother in his UW letter jacket somewhere in our basement...need to track that one down and digitize it.

And did I open up a can of worms.

My great, great grand father and his wife came from Austria to Minnesota back in 1896.
    
Another later family picture with nine of their 13 children. My grandfather wasn't born yet...
