I never met either of my great-grandfathers or my natural maternal grandfather, and pictures of them are more than scarce...

Grandpa & Grandma VW Grandpa & Grandma Leedy
Merle & Dorothy Lawrence S. Ashcraft
Grandpa Merle (Landon), Dorothy and crew Grandma Dorothy, Mom, Gary and me (1953)
My family was a bit ahead of the times - the grandfathers I knew on both sides of my family were "step dads"; Grandpa Ashcraft married Adello after her divorce from Charles VW (1931) and Grandpa Landon married Dorothy after Leslie died in 1944. Because of this, I have uncles, aunts, step-uncles, and step-aunts that I don't know.
