Photograph Showcase: Claude Albert Ellis as a Young Man

ELLIS, Claude Albert as a young man in suit and hat
Claude Albert Ellis


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
