My grandparents, Walter and Mary Dreffs with their two sets of twins Walter and Wilma on the outside and little Daniel and (my mother) Diane on the inside.  My mother was the baby of sixteen children (thirteen survived).  I love the look on my Uncle Wally’s face… classic!

Wordless Wednesday – Rose (Karpuk) Dreffs
Sep 7th, 2011 by Jessica

This little girl is my aunt Rose Helen (Karpuk) Dreffs.  The photo is dated 1939, when Aunt Rose would have been 11 years old.

The bottom of the frame is inscribed “Saginaw Photo Shop, 507 Genesee, Saginaw Mich.”

Try to follow along if you can.  My grandmother Mary Stroik married Andrew Karpuk and had several children in the 1920’s and 1930’s, including Rose Helen Karpuk.  Aunt Rose Karpuk grew up and married Edward Dreffs in 1946.  A few years later, her mother Mary Karpuk divorced Rose’s father Andrew Karpuk and married Rose’s husband Edward Dreffs’ uncle, Walter Anthony Dreffs.

Yes, my grandmother married her daughter’s husband’s uncle.
