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
