My great-aunt writes...


"Dear Family, here is a picture of Stevan and Grandma Topsy Olds and Yumma Benedict and 4 Navy WAVES, 18 March 1945, in Woodside, MD not long before Yumma was his date graduation week at West Point. - Margaret/Sis"

Ruth Mary "Yumma" Benedict was my grandma; she's the one in front in the cardigan. May "Topsy" Olds was my great-great grandmother, Yumma's grandma. The dashing Stevan was her cousin.
