Grandma Nellie with grandkids

Here's another one from Elvis's Brassfield-Hunt memories photo album. It is captioned left to right "Betty, Grandma, Irene, Elvis." Nellie Belle (Bates) Brassfield-Evers is Grandma in the photo.

As I mentioned before, Her husband Elvis H. Brassfield died in 1904, she then married Ben Evers around 1915 and was with him until her death in 1940. They lived in Cherokee, Iowa and I think that's where this photo was taken. Irene was born in June 1924, so the photo appears to be from summer of 1924.
