That dapper young man up there is my great-grandfather, Claude Albert Ellis. Grandpa Ellis was born and raised in North Ogden, Utah. At the age of 21, he left to serve as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Eastern States Mission. After his return, he married my great-grandmother, Blanche Octavia Huband. They lived their life together in North Ogden. Grandpa Ellis was born in 1890 and passed away in 1978.
This photo is unlabeled but was found in a folder created by my grandmother, Mary Margaret Ellis, Claude’s daughter. She labeled the folder as “Claude”. I love Grandpa Ellis’ bowtie and hat! The detail at the cuff of his suit sleeve is cool – I’ve never seen a cuff like that before.
Happy Thursday! How are your photo preservation efforts going? Have you scanned and shared a photo lately? I hope so!! xoxo
