Family Friday: Slater/Ethridge

The notes for this photograph of my great-uncle and his wife read, "Cecil & Eloise - Omaha Nebraska."

Lewis Cecil Slater (1893-1966) and Clara Eloise Ethridge (1895-1968) were living in Louisiana at the time this photo was taken (probably in the late 1930s to the early 1940s from Eloise's clothes and the cars in the background). Since his mother Rufina and sister Opal had been living in Omaha since at least 1935, they may have been visiting them.*

*Rufina Ellen Tomlinson Slater died in 1943 in Omaha, so it's possible that they could have been there for the funeral.
