Ancient Memories

This is my Mom and Dad's first home together. Mom labelled it "Home May 1929"
Their first child Robert William, was born in the hospital, and died there shortly after his birth. My brother Ed, and I were both born in this house 1932 and 1933.
They lost the house during the depression, and later my Dad built a house in the same neighborhood. Mom told us about this being our house, and there were pictures of us as babies sitting on blankets on the lawn. I always thought I could remember the house when we visited friends there, when we were growning up. The stairway was familiar, and I always felt somewhat haunted there.
