MaryAnn was such a precious baby, made even more so, since great grandma, Wanda Dale Roberts, a.k.a. Dale, had, had such a dangerous time, giving birth to her, the doctors said, she could never have another, so MaryAnn, would be their only child.

This is a picture of my father, Wesley Gerald Robison, a.k.a. Wes, and his younger brother, Hubert Eugene Robison. Wes was born June 30, 1931 in Southard, Canton Co., Oklahoma. His brother, Hubert was born, Feb 4, 1933 in Seiling, Dewey Co., Oklahoma.
The boys sure seem to be enjoying, that age old game of horse. Look at the grin on my fathers face, as he gives his brother a ride. I think the ride has got too wild, and Hubert is shouting, WHOA!
In the foreground, stands my grandfather, Gerald Dawson Robison, a.k.a. Shorty. He is leaning against his car, rifle in hand. I think he is pretty proud of that rifle.
This is the third in this series, taken at the same time as the pictures above. Here we see, Hubert once again, on the left, but this time, Wes is holding his dad, Shorties, rifle. Grandma Lillie Mary Thompson-Robison, is the person behind the camera, and since she took these pictures, unfortunately there isn't one showing her here.

Grandpa was two in this picture. He was taken to a nice picture studio, by his folks, to get this done, so the tiny tricycle, probably isn't his. Don't you just love his sweet little jumper, and nice leather shoes?! I wonder how hard they tried, to get him to smile for the camera?
This picture of grandma was taken when she was one year old, and was on the back porch, of the house in Mosier. Sadly, this house has since burned down, but I will be sharing pictures of it, as I go. Grandma told me, that she doesn't remember living there, as she was much too young. But she did go there, and play as a child, and always loved her trips to the farm.
