Little Brother Playing with Friend

16-year-old Helena Muffly wrote exactly 100 years ago today: 

Tuesday, July 18, 1911: Besse and her little nephew were out this afternoon.  Jimmie had quite a romp with said fellow. I can’t write very much about myself these days.

Recent photo of the Muffly farm. If I use my imagination I can almost see 5-year-old Jimmie chasing a friend around the yard.

Her middle-aged granddaughter’s comments 100 years later:

Grandma’s  brother Jimmie was 5-years-old, and her sister Besse was married to Curt Hester. One of Curt’s sisters or brothers must have had a son.
