Shoemaker Family Photo Album

A Special Thank You to my Uncle Claude for sending me these photographs from an old family album, so I may share them with all who are connected to the Shoemaker family.

Photo #1 - Shoemaker Family Photo - abt.c.1942
Front Row -- Lady with the dark hair is Callie Dona Brooks Harper (m/o Earnest James Harper, my grandfather). The elderly lady and gentleman are Mary Delila (Della) Akers Shoemaker and William Grant Shoemaker (parents of Etta Marie Shoemaker, my grandmother).

My uncle, Claude Samuel Harper, is the blonde-haired boy in the front row between the two ladies. My mother, Mary Donia Harper, is the young girl in the white blouse on William's left shoulder.
Also in the picture are my aunts Irene, Doris, Betty, Roy and Ruth Harper. The others are Bernice Harper and George Bellamy and children, Opha Shoemaker and Larry Booth and children. (Bernice is Earnest's sister and Opha is Etta's sister).
