Old Photographs Saved From Trash Can ~ #64 Brother and Sister in 1950

Samuel Royalty “Roy” LILLIE (1895-1979) with his sister Ruth Joanna LILLIE (1907-1986) in a photo taken on 22 April 1950, five days before Ruth’s 43rd birthday and six months before she would marry for the first time.

MRIN21907 LillieSamuelRoyaltyRuth Rooney CollectionRoy’s son Lynn Vance LILLIE  was the last owner of this collection before it was saved from the trash. He will be featured next week.

Roy, son of Isaac Spencer “Ike” LILLIE and Florence ROYALTY, played in important roll in this collection of old photographs. It was very likely his mother Florence who saved most of the older photographs while Roy added to the collection with his own portraits.

As a military brat I've lived in Georgia, France, Idaho, West Virginia, Spain, South Carolina, Texas, and Luxembourg. Married 39 years with two grown children. When I’m not doing genealogy, I spend time riding my racing bike with my husband through the wonderful countryside in Luxembourg and surrounding countries.
