Anderson-Bohall Family History Photos
Cousin Sonner Murphy passed away last month. His being the oldest cousin, this has been a time to reflect on family history.
Having been designated the keeper of the family archives that our Aunt Gussie had been saving for almost a century, and wanting to get as many pictures posted as possible before his August 31 st Grand Coffee Time Memorial (Coffee??) in Ketchikan, I am posting photos in a random sort of way with whatever explanation I may have.
These are part of a much larger narrative dating back to the 1300's which is in the process of being written. The first pages will include family through our generation, that of the grandchildren of Mary Anderson Bohall
There is a comment box for anyone to share info, so add your questions and answers! Fun, huh?
Let's start with the central figure we all know - we will call her Nannie Mary Stass Anderson Bohall

The Anderson Bohall Family
Nannie's family were German/Swiss immigrants. Her first husband was Conrad Anderson, an immigrant from Norway. Nannie was working in her mother's bakery in Alabama where she met Conrad. Conrad was killed in a train accident in 1913. She later married Ted Bohall in Seattle.

We have few pictures of Conrad, but this is the most commonly found one in the pictures collected. He is leading the parade in a Modern Woodsman Drill Team. Early 1900's. Conrad was killed in a train accident in 1913.
