Early in 1943 my family went from Arlington, Texas, to Bell County to visit Dad's relatives.  His brother "Jake" was building a house in Tennessee Valley north west of Belton.  These snapshots were taken there with Jake's family, Manny with his and Dad with us.  Neale was just a infant having been born in early November 1942.  --  c. c. chaney
