Paul Eugene Elder

My Grandfather, Paul Eugene Elder (1899-1950).

I never knew my Grandfather. He died 14 years before I was born and my father never had a photo of him. As of yesterday I never knew what he looked like.

I don't know when this photo was taken. My thought is 1926 on his wedding day.

Dad had told me long ago that Paul loved baseball and was a Cleveland Indians fan, He would sit on thje front porch and wath his sons play ball in the street.

 Now I have a photo of 5 generations of Elder men.
