My grandfather was Fred Woodall Lashmet of Winchester, Illinois who married Claira Anne Good (a school marm in Wray, Colorado) in 1921 after he returned from the hostilities of WWI in France.He served in the 315th Machine Gun Co. of the US Army from 1917 - 1919.Following the war, he joined the Foreign Legion and maintained his membership until his death.He was my favorite relative and passed away in Denver in 1975 when I was just 13.I was too young to realize what trials he had been through in life and there is so much now I wish I had asked him.We all lived in Denver where I was born for the first few years of my life. Many days, Grandpa and I would sit on the metal glider on the porch of their home at 4021 32nd Ave and count cars as they passed the house.He would often take me shopping with him (either walking to the corner store, or for a drive in their 1947 Chevrolet).I also remember many wagon rides around the block.What a kind, gentle, and very dignified man.He had piercing blue eyes that wrapped me in warmth when he gazed at me.He was very protective and doting of my 3 year older sister, Janet, and me.I remember he usually wore a 2 or 3 piece dark suit and hat wherever he went away from the house and gray Dickies work shirts and pants at home (starched and pressed).His favorite food was sweet cornbread ("Johnnie-cake"), and his favorite drink was grape drink.He had a son, Fred Jr., a daughter, Mary, another daughter, Margaret Ann (my mother, now Margaret Ann Jackson), and a second son, John Eugene, who was to be a playmate for my mother in childhood, but died in infancy (aged 19 months) from spinal menengitis. My folks just downsized houses, and I ended up with all my mother's family records, photos, etc. dating back 100+ years (3 large boxes) . . . what a life the Lashmets and Goods lived.Dave, I have seen your name in some of the cryptic captions and letters, but not sure where you fit into the Lashmet family tree.
