I am currently working on my Family Genealogy Group Page for my Facebook page. In doing so, I realized that I have a tremendous amount of photos. I decided to feature one per week. No, not everyone is perfect, but they are perfect to me.
This week I am showcasing my 1st cousin Leroy Gibson Ogan born on September 19. 1882, in Windsor, Henry County, Missouri. This photo makes him seem like he would be a kind, easy-going guy. It was taken in 1920 when he was working in the shipyards in Long Beach, California. Over the course of his life, he had worked as a farmer, a painter, a conductor, and at the age of 18, he lived and worked as a school teacher on the Kaw and Osage Indian Reservations in the Oklahoma Territory. He was a member of the Cherokee Tribe as his mother was a full-blooded Cherokee. He died on December 8, 1974, in Azusa, California.
I am a professional genealogist, writer, photographer, wife, mother, and grandma. I have two books available on Amazon.com: Your Family History: Doing It Right the First Time and Planning Your Genealogy Research Trip. You can also connect with me via Facebook or Twitter.
