Here again we find Leola and Verna front and center in this exceedingly precious photo of the Five Mad Seelys and their parents, dating from the late 1930s or very early 1940s (Grandma died in 1943; Grandpa, in 1945). Behind the sisters stand Jim (F Leland), A. M., Grant, Alfaretta, and Elwyn.
The scene, by the way, is the front yard of the Seely homestead in Brigham City. Over Uncle Grant’s head, almost obscured by his distinctive altitude, you can just make out the front door. If the porch swing is still there, it’s out of sight. Please enjoy the Cinderella story on the next page…
