Where was this? And is Nannie apart of family past, or did you guys know her personally? And I can see some resemblance in between Charlie and Charles Journeycake. Not so much in the hair, but in the eyes a little. Very cool!
This was taken in Dewey, Oklahoma. Nannie would be Charlie's great great great aunt. Since we've been back in Coffeyville, Kansas this week, we've spent some time digging a little deeper into the family history. We knew a little about Journeycake, but we found out much more on this visit. We found an illustration of a window in a church bearing his portrait. We decided to seek the window out and ended up finding it in a history museum in a neighboring town. We found Nannie in a nearby church. It was a pretty remarkable day.
