You never know what you are going to find when you start going through the family pictures. This picture had been in my grandpa Yates' possession for probably 60 years before I ever saw it. For whatever reason, my family just didn't get out the old pictures and talk about the people that were in them.
This is a photo of my Great-great Grandfather (on the left) James Knox Polk Yates, and his son Gideon Yates. I imagine that JKP Yates probably made the coffin for his son. I don't know what Gideon's cause of death was, but to me, this photo speaks volumes about my family.
So much for Wordless Wednesday, huh?
