1952 Photo

OK, here's another one Dave just sent me. Can anyone identify everyone in this picture from 1952? The hint is: four of them are our ancestors.

Well I recognize Jammi and Grandpa, but I have no idea who the others are.

Rob said...

That's grandpa on the far left, correct? Looks like Scott and me. Handsome devil.

Lindsay said...

Yeah, I recognize Jammie and Grandpa (Robert Comish, of course). And the older couple on the right--Bammie and Bumpa?

I'm pretty sure that's Uncle Dave not Grandpa, Great grandpa Earl Crockett, Jammie, Aunt Margy, and Great grandma Della Crockett, I don't recognize the other older man.

Carly said...

That's not Dad's dad??? He looks an awful lot like him, even though I've never "seen" him.

Davy said...

Yep, your Grandpa (we called Daddy) took the picture, so he's not in it. Your mom had the others correct. The man on the far right is your great-great grandfather, George F. Comish. He died two years later. His home is still standing in Franklin, Idaho. Uncle Dave and Aunt Margy email me frequently.

Davy said...

I think Young Uncle Dave here at age 16 looks like a perfect fit for your family.

Lindsay said...

I was actually thinking myself that the guy who is Uncle Dave didn't look quite like the pictures I remember of Dad's dad. His hair is darker, isn't it?

So, Click Here to see the pedigree chart that highlights the ancestors.

Lindsay said...

So Bamie and Bumpa were Jammie's parents, right? And that's what they were called?

Davy said...

Right

Davy said...

Bumpa was the first mission president over Central America. He built the first chapel there. Great-Grandpa Crockett was Vice President of BYU for many years and was acting president for awhile. As kids we would play "office" in the BYU president's office. Both were very great men.

Carly said...

Wow Dad (and Davy) you come from a very prestigious line of men! It's only natural that both of you are "big shots." Big shot lawyer, big shot (and crazy) endurance athlete.

Lindsay said...

Pretty cool. It's really interesting to me to learn about our heritage. Thanks for sharing, Uncle Dave.

Someday I need to seriously get into all the geneaology (sp??) stuff.
