Family picture On the front lawn at Moran Place
I love this picture. It was taken about 1936 in front of the family home in Dresden TN. The men have such jaunty expressions and poses. But let me start with the ladies. On the left is Elizabeth (Betty) McCloskey, the first wife of James Henderson Moran IV. He's seated in front of her looking very full of himself! Then we have Louise Moran, she would be about 15 years old. She's standing next to her mother, Virginia Shumate Moran who has her hand draped over the shoulder of her husband James Henderson Moran III. And that fella with the tilted head is my father-in-law, Nathan Harrell Moran aka Bub.
