Photograph of Carita Belknap Hedrick McCarroll. Probably taken in the 1920's, possibly in Ames, Iowa where she served as a sorority housemother for the college there.
In early 1940's this photo was taken at the home of my father, Thomas E. Keefe Jr. 1207 N. Wapello St., Ottumwa, Iowa Dad had just joined the Navy, my brother Thomas E. Keefe !!! had just joined the US Air Force. Carita Belknap Hedrick McCarroll is shown here in her early 70's along with me, John McCarroll Keefe at 7 or 8.
Early in the 1900's my grandfather, William f. McCarroll, drove this Oldsmobile from Ottumwa, Iowa to Demming, New Mexico. He was seeking a cure from TB. Along with the dog,he was accompanied by his brother,, who I believe was named Brown McCarroll. It was a long drive and I can not fathom how full of trouble it must have had. Suchcourage
