As a young boy, at times I was asked to stay with my maturnal grand parents John and Clara Miller in their home to help them with their chores. They were in their 80's and both lived over 90. They milked cows by hand, raised pigs, chickens, did not have running water in their home and in the winter, I remember the water bucket was frozen in the morning.
Here they are when they were young.
Here they are shortly before Grandad passed away.
Here is a page from my mother's journal of her family. My mom is the little girl standing between her mother and father. The other three pictures are of her father, who was a fun loving man. Mom grew up on the west side of Teton Valley, Idaho in the Cedron area.
