Photograph Showcase: Proud of His Plane

Isn’t this such a cool photo?

 

My great grandfather, Francis Henry Duval, owned a plane with his brother-in-law, Bill Hunter.  Bill was married to Grandpa Duval’s older sister Vera.  They owned the plane for a few years until it burned.  This was during the time that Grandpa was making moonshine so I wonder if they ever used the plane to run their bootleg whiskey?  Hmmmm… maybe I can get to the bottom of that.

 

Happy Thursday!  Do you have any plane-owning or moonshine-making ancestors?  They are fascinating!
