Photograph Showcase: Uncle Rady

MAFFIT, Lorado Shorman
Lorado Shorman Maffit

Lorado Shorman Maffit, “Uncle Rady”, is my great-granduncle.  He was born 24 February 1916 in Gildford, Hill, Montana to my 2nd great-grandparents, Seth Maffit & Emma Esther Jerrain.

This lovely portrait was taken by his older sister Estelle, my great-grandmother.  Looking at this photo I can feel how much Grandma Estelle loved her brother.  Do you feel it too?

Uncle Rady died when I was 16, if I ever met him, I don’t remember.


Note:  This post originally called him “Uncle Corky” and shared some details about Uncle Corky.  My Mom misremembered and I didn’t double check my notes.  Whoops!  Thankfully one of my Grandma’s cousins sent me a kind email.  Uncle Corky was a different brother.  Thank you, Willow Jeane!  ❤️


Happy Thursday, I hope you make a fantastic photo discovery very soon!  xoxo
