Affectionately known as Gaga to our family, Muriel Grey Thomas was born on November 11, 1895 in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. She had an older brother Louis Chester Thomas born in 1893 and a younger sister Olive Antoinette Thomas born in 1897.
She married Frank Howard Davenport on June 24, 1919 in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. They had six children in all. Olive Anne (b.1920) and Lois Mary (b.1921) in Canada, Barbara Grey (b.1922) and Marion Ethel (b.1925) in North Dakota, and Frank Howard (b.1929) and George Thomas “Mickey” (b.1933) in White Bear Lake, Minnesota.
Below is a wedding photo I found that was about 2″ diameter at most and mounted in a small jewelry like frame.
I believe that would be Muriels parents Louis and May Thomas on either side of them and I would guess Olive Thomas her sister standing behind her mother and I have no idea of the other two, but the young boy in front sure looks like he is having fun.
Next is a family portrait with all six children.
I believe standing are Marion, Lois, Olive and Barb and in front are Frank II (Dad), Muriel, George Thomas (Mickey) and Frank I.
And here are a couple more Grandma pictures:
The picture on the left is Mary Esther (Magill) Mead and Muriel and on the right is Muriel and Great Grandma Nora.
Aren’t grandma’s the best!
