|A kid born in Philly. Circa mid 1930's|
|L to R: Grandpa & Grandma Richards, Grandpa and Grandma Steunenberg.|
Dad was a hard guy to get information out of and not much was known about the Richards' genealogy other than grandma and grandpa and maybe an uncle and aunt back east. There was so little in any of the family photo albums that sometimes I started to think maybe we had Italian mafia connections. Just kidding...but he has left us without revealing very much and no doubt I am going to have to start digging a little deeper I guess. As even with the Steunenberg's, one has to be prepared and ready to accept the Richards/Ricciotti road of history no matter where it might lead.
As time allows, I will throw a few more items on here.
Rest in peace Dad.
|Still has the suspenders, and now baggy pleats and puffing a Camel.|
Circa: Before my time.
|L to R - my Dad, Grandma Francis, my mom Brenda and Grandpa Julian Steunenberg at the ranch in Escondido, CA. A lot of good memories there.|
Circa later 1950's/early 1960's?
