Ok i got them down loaded off phone ,hope this all works as i am not to computer smart. I can say there were alot of people in Pennsylvania ,Ohio and NY. there and all so  impressed with with how long Dad lived healthy with a memory and great health til 4 months ago. A lot of folks here in AZ.too.. I am so proud to be his son. We were poor but He allways found a way to take Me an Him hunting since I was about 7-8 years old .{left the 4 sisters at home}, Allways had an old car ,never a truck. Born in 1920 Dad cried 20 years ago when He told me He had to quit school in the 5th grade to help find food and clothing for his 4 younger sisters. {all Whom He out lived,} That was 1930 prime of the Great Depresion. . Gamps was a Mechanic and went on the road to find what ever work he could and send home $. Gram. was a seamstress and sewed rag together and thats what they whore, and She sold clothes to others. They lost their house and were living with grandparents. This was all in Brookville PA. now right on I 80 inthe central mtns. of PA. After the War they all moved to Erie Pa. to work in the facktories. I have so Many WWII stories Dad told me about 20 years ago We need all night around the campfire to hear them. Dad was in Africa and India in the war . These pics are from India and then back home ,some with Me and Him Thanks all and enjoy Your Dad. I was blessed to have him healthy till 98.There are so many good stories I want to tell but I cant type long enough. Again thanks and enjoy..Some pics are sideways I dont know why They are noy on My screen when I download em or were they taken sideways...........Robert Richard  Baughman JR.
