Apparently, The Eyebrow of Doom IS hereditary. John G. Muckey was my first cousin 5X removed


1943 My grandfather Thomas A. Hawkins and his Navy peers in their enlistment group photo, about 1943. Grandpa is two persons directly above the officer on the right. He enlisted in the Construction Battalion and was separated in 1953 as a Boatswain’s Mate (Stevedore) Petty Officer First Class. This photo was taken either in Columbia or Charleston, S.C., where he entered).



1945 This is a newspaper photo of my husband’s grandmother’s bowling team. It was taken in Illinois, but I’m not sure of the town where Smitty’s Tavern was located – probably either Libertyville or Grayslake.
