(Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 189: Fred Shaw of Leominster, Mass.

 I am posting photographs from my family collections for (Not So) Wordless Wednesday (you know me, I can't go wordless!). 

This is a picture of Fred Richmond Shaw (1909-1967), the son of Fred and Grace L. (Richmond) Shaw.  The picture was taken, I think, in the 1920s.  The picture was in the photograph bounty handed down from my parents in the 1988 to 2002 time frame.

Fred was a first cousin of my father and his siblings, since their mother was Alma Bessie Richmond, the sister of Grace Richmond.

Fred Shaw was slightly older than my father, Fred (born in 1911) and his brother, Edward (born 1913), but he was the only male cousin of about the same age in Leominster, so they saw a lot of each other and played together throughout their childhoods.

I have connected with Fred's granddaughter, Laura (my second cousin once removed), who has provided me with more photographs of this Richmond/Shaw family line.  She is the closest Seaver/Richmond cousin I have contact with, and it occurred through writing Genea-Musings posts and Laura finding them online.  Blogging works!
