(Jimmy’s caption:)This is a picture of me as a baby and was taken in 1942. My mother Grace is holding me. She is front row, 2nd from the right. Lee is first row, right end and Gwen is 1st row, 3rd from the right. My dad is on the back row, 2nd from right and is holding Karen, who would have been only a year old (Hazel’s age). Joyce is 2nd row, 1st on left. Kent has yet to make the scene.

I have many of these photos, in particular the thumbnails at the top, with thanks by courtesy of Joyce’s son Larry Richman, who has assembled the definitive collection of photos of Jim’s and Grace’s family as one section of his richmanfamily.org website, with an “Index of Names in the Seely Family Line” at http://richmanfamily.org/seely-2/. It’s a vast and precious assemblage, and I’m profoundly grateful to Larry for putting it together and sharing it with us.
