Family Friday: Trainer/O'Brien

The two men in this Ft. Wayne, Indiana, photo captioned "Dad - the fiddler, John & his eagle," are my best friend's maternal grandfather Roy O'Connor Trainer (1873-1948) and his brother-in-law John H. O'Brien (1868-1942).*

The handsome glass-fronted oak bookcase ended up in San Diego but not the rustic burl-root chairs and hatstand or the eagle.

*Thank you Bonnie for setting me straight about the identity of John.

  1. Not his son John, but his brother in law, John O'Brien, my grandmother's brother, who brought all that stuff back from Idaho, where he had lived for some years!
