Wednesday's Child - Elmer Lee Winders

A child of my third great uncle, Charles Henry Winders, is this week's Wednesday's Child. His name was Elmer Lee Winders. It's one of my favorite old photos of babies in my family collection.

 Elmer was born on December 12, 1906 in Columbia, Boone County, Missouri. His father, Charles Winders was a Pastor. Within a few years of this photo being taken, the family moved to Indianapolis, Indiana, where Elmer would grow up. He became a pharmaceutical salesman. From my research, it would seem that Elmer retired to Florida in 1973, which is where he passed away on August 7, 1982. 

I love this photo of Elmer as a baby. But here's a bonus photo of him several years later. I'm not sure what year it was taken. But I love the outfit he's wearing.

I spend a lot of time researching my Winders ancestors, because there are a few brick walls in there. I was very fortunate last year to have a bunch of Winders family photos and genealogical research sent to me from a historical society. It is mostly related to the Charles Winders family. Hoping to post some more about them soon.
