Donald David and Mabel Corey

This is a wonderful picture. It is the earliest picture of my mother, Jessie Dorothy Corey, who was the daughter of Donald David and Mabel. In the picture, Mabel is holding Jessie, who was born November 20, 1918. As you may know, Donald David Corey died an untimely death in 1922 from diabetes. After his death, the family was broken up and several of the children were sent to foster homes, including my mother, who was sent to Minnesota to live with John and Althea Mace. She spent the rest of her young life with the Maces, graduated from Okabena High School near Worthington, met and married my dad, Wayne Philip Brotzman in 1942. They moved to Rio Hondo, Texas in 1946, where my dad started a welding shop and blacksmith business. I'm the first of their six children. My dad died in a work accident on December 8, 1975. Mother never remarried, and died December 27, 2011 from a stroke. Hope this fills in a few gaps in the Corey family history.
