JOSEPH & MARGARET (GRANT) DELOREY
You have met them before and already have seen two photographs of Joseph and Margaret, the first at the time of their marriage in 1867, and a wonderful family photograph with eight of their children in 1892 (posted in February of this year).
This one will serve to link Joseph and his son William Louis, next in my husband’s lineage. It was taken about 1880 in Elizabethport, New Jersey.
This brings us to William Louis Delorey's generation (7) in the posts that will follow.Lots of photographs for Williams children remembered fondly that their father loved to have photographs of his family, both individually and in groups.
