Shared Photo: Max at three years old.

+14 votes

This is my Grandfather's youngest brother, Maxwell Murray Taylor, at about three years old, on a donkey. Max died of diphtheria in 1917, at age 7. My great grandfather, who was Chief of Detectives for the New York Central Railroad in Columbus, Ohio, was devastated. Afterwards, he drove the family every Sunday to the cemetery to Maxwell's grave,

I wanted to share this family photo of Maxwell Taylor with the community. Location: Columbus, Franklin, Ohio, USA. Date: 1913.

Thank you for sharing your photo with us..  so cute I love it.

Thank you. I do love this picture. He is such a little doll. His death was tragic for my great grandparents. He was 4 years younger than my grandfather, and probably an "unexpected" joy in 1910 when he was born.
Thank you so much for sharing your photo.

What a lovely photo, and a very touching story to go with it.  I have a similar photo of my Dad somewhere in the pile of photos I mean to get to.  You've inspired me to look for it.

Thank you for sharing. What a moving story Sheri.

Loosing young ones, or loved ones,  should never happen to anyone.
