Dick Crouch is standing in the lower
right in front of mother Roxa and grandmother Ida Beamer. Father Palmer
Crouch is behind Roxa. To Palmer's right is Claude Crouch with Aunt Em to
his right. Above Aunt Em is Frank Williams and his mother is to his right.
In front of Aunt Em is Claude Mock holding his daughter with his son to
their left. This picture was taken in Pomona, CA in November 1927. The full
story is in Dick Crouch
Family History and Frank D. Williams
(for what it's worth,
no one in the family has ever accepted the identification of Claude Mock in
this picture. Apparently Claude did not have a son. The identification came
from the names on the back of the picture. Dick believes the person
identified as Claude Mock is Oscar Mock, who I assume is a brother.)
