Adalbert Haf

One Hundred and Sixteen years ago today, my maternal grandfather, Adalbert Haf, was born to Emilie née Schallhammer (1871 - 1944) and Adalbert Haf, (1868 - 1952),  in Kempten, Allgau, Germany. 

I was very close to my Opa, I would follow him around constantly according to my mom. He has been gone for a very long time ~ I still miss him very much. Happy Birthday Opa!

Birthday of Great~Aunt Virginia Probst née Ijames ~

Virginia 'Jenny' Lee Ijames
5 Jan 1895 ~ Daviess Co. Owensboro, Kentucky
24 Jun 1966 ~ Louisville, Jefferson Co., Kentucky

Today, we are remembering my paternal great-aunt Virginia 'Jenny' Probst née Ijames, on what would have been her 128th birthday. I never had the privilege of meeting her but I am honored to have been named after her and her niece, my aunt Virginia 'Ginnie' Eimes.  We have a lot of "Virginia's" in our family.
