Daniel Autrey Hanners Baby Pictures
Today I found some very sweet pictures. It was such a surprise, since there are almost no baby pictures of grandpa, Daniel Autrey Hanners. In fact, there is some question as to whether these are of him, or his older brother, Claibourne Gladstone Hanners. The two boys looked so much alike, as babies, that later when their mother went to label these, she wasn't sure, which of her sons it was.
Since neither of the two pictures, is showing the face of the baby, we can just enjoy them, and think of grandpa, when we do, for no doubt, he did these things as well. At least we know where he is playing, which is in the front yard, of his grandma's house, in Doniphan, Ripley Co., Missouri. Her name was, Harriett Adeline Parker, and she married, gr. grandpa, William Russell McFalls Autrey, a.k.a. Mack.
Grandpa is still in dresses here, and every time I see one of these old photo's, with the baby all in white, I think, how on earth did they keep them clean?! He looks like he is having a lovely time, in the dirt and grass, doesn't he.
