Somehow I’m thinking Euin Aaron SWYERS (Sept. 24, 1907 St. James, Reynolds Co., MO – Feb. 27, 1974 Salem, Dent Co., MO; buried Cherryville Baptist Church Cemetery, Crawford, MO), on the right, may be the car’s owner, but that’s only my best guess.
Standing with Euin are my great-grandfather Granville Smith GREGER (Jan. 20, 1864 Vandalia, Owen, IN – Oct. 17, 1961 KS; Anderson Cemetery, McDonald Co., MO) and, my paternal aunt, Nell Alta BUCKNER (Sept. 29, 1915 TX – June 26, 1976 Indianapolis, Marion, IN; Resurrection Cemetery, St. Louis, MO).
One relative reminiscenced of Aunt Nell’s 2nd husband, Euin, “…he turned out to be mean as hell… I don’t know how long they were married. He came out to the farm one time looking for Ed [Aunt Nell’s twin brother] — he had a pitchfork in hand. I told him Ed had gone to town. It was a scary incident.”
