Waltman Family Collection


Cleveland and Allen Waltman, c. 1920

Cleveland and Allen Waltman, c. 1920

According to donor: Cleveland and Allen Waltman, ca. 1916
The 1920 and 1930 census records indicate that Cleveland Waltman was born ca. 1915 and Allen Waltman was born ca. 1917, so this photo cannot be from 1916.
