Dawn (Willis) Hicks' Great Grandfather's Photo Collection
From the collection of John Charles Willis 1884-1956
He was born in Scranton, PA., ran away (on the train) at the age of 16, got off in Valparaiso. There he married Alta May Baker 1882-1934. At some point they moved to South Bend, had two children... Anna Geraldine Willis (Usher) and John (m. Ruth Merrefield).
It is labled "Automobile Dept 61- Trim Railers - Studebaker - May 15, 1916.
Photo was taken by Ault. It shows 13 men sitting on a stoop, unknown names
(If anyone can identify any of these men please let us know. Contact County Coordinator)
I have no idea what this is..... other than John Charles Willis is front and center.
(CC Note: I would venture to say that these men are Security Guards for Studebaker)
I have no clue what this is........
Again.... no info
And again... have no idea... other than John Charles Willis... back and center with arms crossed.
This is John Charles Willis and Alta May (Baker) Willis. This was a taken by Vogue Studio
