Thursday This n That

Well this is it. Today is Answer Day! For three days every week we either have a Trivia Question or a Challenge and Thursday is Answer Day! 

Additionally Thursdays might include some kind of search hints, or reports on trips I've made to various cemetaries, meetings or conferences.

Since this is our first week we only have the two Trivia Questions to Answer.

Tuesday's Family Trivia

Marie Gesch told Jean that she had always wanted a daughter one day when Jean was staying with her.  She pointed to the doll, pictured above, and said that she had always wanted to have a daughter and if she had, she would have named her Susie.  Jean Gesch Slocum has the doll Grandma Gesch called Susie and the small rocking chair that Susie always used to sit in was last known to be in the possession of Herman Gesch, Jr.

George Washington Slocum 
(see Slocum aka McHenry page)
The picture is in honor of  his
High School Graduation
probably late 1800's to early 1900's
The ribbon he wore probably designated him as Valedictorian.

Interestingly enough, none of George's Sons (raised during the depression)
graduated from High School
