Betty Brassfield at Cherokee, 1924

Here's another photo from Elvis Brassfield's Brassfield-Hunt memories album. It is captioned "Betty @ Cherokee 1924." I think the Floyd Brassfield family lived in Cherokee after leaving the Fairfax, SD area and before moving to Lake City, IA. Floyd's mother Nellie also lived in Cherokee with her husband Ben Evers.

The wagon is a Heider Coaster. These apparently were made by the Heider Manufacturing Company in Carrol, Iowa.

Betty was the daughter of Thelma Sarah (Hunt) and Floyd Gipson Brassfield. Betty Lucille Brassfield (Benckendorf) (1923-2003) was their oldest daughter, born April 18, 1923 in Fairfax, South Dakota. She died June 10, 2003 in Salem, Oregon.
