Ben Evers with Irene Brassfield

Ben Evers and Irene Brassfield
Irene Brassfield with Ben Evers in Cherokee, Iowa
This is a photo of Ben Evers (1872-1954) with Irene Brassfield (1924-2010) in front of the Evers home in Cherokee, Iowa. Ben Evers married my 2nd great grandmother Nellie (Bates-Brassfield) Evers in 1915, years after the death of my 2nd great grandfather Elvis H. Brassfield in 1904. Ben was step-grandfather to my grandfather Elvis J. Brassfield. Irene Brassfield was the sister of Elvis J. Brassfield.
