Remembering Grandpa Robert Eimes ~ 1898-1979 ~




Robert Newton Ijames-Eimes, grandpa of yours truly, died on this date in 1979, in Louisville, Kentucky.

This newspaper piece above was given to me by my aunt Ginnie, Robert's daughter. It is the only photo that she has found of him and I am so grateful aunt Ginnie shared it with me. She said he was quite the character . . . sure would have liked to have known him.  Rest in Peace dear grandpa Robert.

What a fun picture! Of course I love any picture of an ancestor, but I especially love those that are more random and catch them in their day to day tasks as it seems to tell more of their story. So glad she kept the newspaper and even more glad that she shared it with you.

Some of my favorite pictures are candid shots like this one.

Thank you, Sheryl, Diane and Michelle . . . it's the only photo we seem to have of my grandfather which is sad but I will take it . . . so much better than none. I never had the opportunity to meet him but he seemed like a fun grandpa!

Diane, Thank you for the nominating me for the "Lovely Blog Award" I feel very honored. I am a bit late at this as I was cleaning out my email . . . so sorry but I feel honored!
