E-mail from Martha Hansen:
Picture of Emma, her son Alvin Griffith and his son Jr. taken in Cedar Rapids, IA. I think it was taken some time in the late 1930's Alvin and his wife and son lived in Cedar Rapids at the time, I think. I was right - the bottom picture that I'm sending has written on the back. The tall building in the back is the "Jail" "Cedar Rapids, IA 1937." The other picture is Emma, Alvin, Marge "Mason" Griffith and Jr. Marge was Alvin's wife. They lived in GA. when she died in late 1950's. Alvin died in June or July 1968.
