Special Pictures # 241 – A Few of Grandpa’s Ancestors

For the next few weekends, I’ll be posting Special Pictures. These are photos that do not pertain directly to the letters I’m posting but are unique and interesting so I want to share them. Enjoy.

The following are pictures of Grandpa’s Grandparents, his parents and a picture of him at about one year old. These ancestors have very interesting lives, which I will be sharing in the future.

Clara Maria de los Dolores Marina (de Beck) Guion (Grandpa’s Grandmother)

The Reverend Elijah Guion (Grandpa’s Grandfather)

Ella (Duryee) Guion (Grandpa’s Mother)

Alfred Beck Guion (Grandpa’s Father)

Alfred Duryee Guion (at about 1 year old)

Tomorrow, another Special Picture. On Monday, a week of letters from 1943. Lad is anticipating his furlough and seeing Trumbull, and his family, again. Judy Guion

      Thank you, Maureen. I’ll be telling the story of Clara Maria de los Dolores Marina de Beck and Rev Elijah Guion in the not too distant future, I think you will enjoy it.

    Do you have dates for these ancestors’ lives?

    • jaggh53163 says:

      Janet, yes I do and I also have a good history of Clara’s and Elijah’s lives before they met and the story of their lives together from New Orleans, where they met and married and most of their children were born, to his posting as Chaplain at The Presidio in San Francisco where they both died. I’ll begin sharing this story after I get all the sources lined up chronologically. It is an amazing story.

    My Dad looks so much like our great great Grandfather, Elijah!
