#52Ancestors (34) John Joseph McBride, in pictures

This week's post is a tribute to my grandfather, John Joseph McBride. He was the namesake of his father, who died before my grandpa was born. He was a first generation American, born to immigrants from England and Scotland. Grandpa lived his entire life (1909-1994) in Joliet, Will, Illinois. His friends knew him as 'Mac' or 'Red,' though the black and white photos don't share his hair color very well. I miss you, Grandpa!
