Mother and son

This is a beautifully colorized photograph of my Uncle Buddy (Lowrey Marlin Robinson) and his mother, Thusie Evans Robinson, my great-grandmother. The mother and son are posing in front of Thusie's crepe myrtle bush at the Robinson home just outside the town of Fulton at the time. I'd say the picture was made in the early 1930s. Uncle Buddy, who was named for two of his uncles - Lowrey Evans and Marlin Robinson - graduated from I.A.H.S. in 1931. He married Coleen Tamsie Cummings on October 19, 1935.
