Hmmmmmmmmm....... not looking great. Looks like he was the only child of Robert E Steele & Bertha Ellen Chedister, and despite marrying Betty Whitman Jermack who was 10 years his junior, didn't have any children.

Struggling a little to track down his paternal grandfather. (Robert Steele not a super uncommon name). But he did at least have an aunt & uncle on his mom's side.

So not all hope is lost, but I might put a pin in this research for today. 5/5

It is 100% Everett. Check out the data from this draft card. Born in El Paso, Texas. Where this photo is from. Born in 1906 tracks with that findagrave page.

HELLO. I have found my boy! Now let's see if he procreated. Or if he had siblings.

OKAY. FULL STOP. The first name on the back of this photo looked like Eldon to me....

....BUT IS IT ACTUALLY EVERETT??? I think it might be Everett. 3/?

Hmmm.... usually I don't start with findagrave and phone/address directories, but it is worth noting that this E Eldon Steele seemed to live in Arizona for a while... I purchased this photo in Arizona... so that would make sense.

Also, what the kiddo is wearing definitely looks like it's something a 2 year old would have worn in 1908 .

Good morning Fediverse! It's been a super long time since I did any antique store purchase genealogy photo research, so let's do a little something something on this cheery Saturday morning.

Meet Ernell Eldon Steele. I don't know anything about him besides he's 2 years & 1 month old in this photo. The photographer's mark is from El Paso, TX.

LET'S SEE WHAT WE CAN FIND OUT. 1/?

Did colorful pineapple nails for my birthday. Because pineapples!! Here's to my 35th roll around the sun. 🍍 πŸŽ‰

Mermay nails I did last week. I love them and don't want to wipe them, but I do want to redo my nails for my birthday on Thursday.

Haven't done a whole lot of nail art I'm proud of lately. I'm in a bit of a rut. T_T But here's map nails I did for a D&D night last month & Ursula inspired nails I did for our Disney cruise.

Finally put the Wiper Tag on Frank. I bought it 3 years ago. πŸ˜…

I'm caught up on and after doing Mollymauk inspired nails, someone on Reddit challenged me to do nails for all the characters. And since I'm a crazy person, I immediately ran out and bought $60 of new nail polish & nail art stuff. πŸ˜‚

So here's Mollymauk & Nott. Caduceus is up next.

"The oral history of the Hampsterdance"

I expected this to be a few pages of "we pasted a bunch of hamster gifs because we thought it was cute" but there is *so much iceberg* here.

So I am officially hopelessly addicted to Critical Role. I've been hardcore binging since last Sunday. I'm on episode 19. Caleb is my fave.
