Pictures With My Van Hoose Grandchildren

Grandma Boney's Visit

Arminda Pyles Boney was visiting her youngest son's family when this picture was taken {probably in 1936}. Vernon's three children are in this group setting with Joann, the youngest daughter of Arminda's oldest son, Irvin.
Lila Jean was the oldest of Vernon's children, her sister is Marie Eileen, and their baby brother is Irvin Wayne. He was named for Vernon's oldest brother, but was later called "Bud." Lila Jean was named for her mother's oldest sister, Lila Belle Mincks. Lila and her beau Handford Chandler, Hank, had been the witnesses at Vernon Boney and Ida Ellen Mincks' wedding on 4 November 1925.
