Grandmom’s older brother Taddle (Patrick Craven) planned to run for the Pennsylvania State Legislature. I never knew this until I found a newspaper article about it (“Pat Craven Has Some Ambitions,” The Harrisburg Telegraph, February 7, 1914). I wonder if this photo was taken for the campaign.
If Taddle did run for office, he didn’t win the election. He went on to volunteer for the Army in 1917 at age 35.
