Grampa was married three times, lived in sin with my grandmother (while still married to his first wife), and fathered five children that I know of: three with his first wife, one with my grandmother, and one with his second wife. Here are photos of him with my grandmother and the later two wives.
|Anna Gauntt and Bert Sellers (probably 1930–1940)|
|Anita (Loveman) and Bert Sellers (probably 1954–1957)|
|Adelle (Taylor) and Bert Sellers (probably 1961–1970)|
Something I realized while writing this post was that the first names of all three of these women begins with the letter A. I never noticed that before.
Another thing I realized is that not a single one of these photos is dated. I can narrow them down somewhat, but that's very frustrating.
Not as frustrating as still having no photo of Grampa's first wife, however. I've been trying for a while to find a photograph of Grampa with Elizabeth Leatherberry Sundermeier, but no one in my family seems to have one, or even one of her by herself. It's almost as if she never really existed, except that I knew my aunts, who were her daughters.
