About a month ago, my Aunt Carolyn sent me some interesting photos. I have previously posted a photo of my great-grandfather, Herman Cunningham, taken while he was serving in WWI. He is posing with John Roy McCravey of Floydada, Texas in the photo. I don’t know how the two knew each other, and I surmised they may have posed for this photo because they were from the same area of Texas.
In her e-mail, Aunt Carolyn said that the two had looked for each other for years after the war. I am not sure when they reunited, but judging from my great-grandfather’s appearance and the appearance of the photo, I think it must be the late-1960’s to mid-1970’s. Carolyn believes she has a newspaper clipping describing their reunion. Again, John Roy McCravey is on the left in both photos, while Herman Cunningham stands on the right.
