It was surprising to see my grandpa (Papa Roy) on the Internet. Roy's name still carries on; I named my son Roy the IV.

The last three ladies toward the back of this picture look like my Mother and her two sisters. Their names were Velma Clark, Chrisine Barham and Marie Ridling. I would love to hear from anyone that would know for sure.

The last lady is definitely my grandmother, (Gammy)Marie Ridling. The other two ladies are her sisters. The first one looks like Aunt Gil( Gillie Mae Cummings). The one in the middle is harder to recognize, but probably Aunt Vel (Velma Clark).

Thank you, Nevada Co. Depot Museum, for the photo of my (grandfather Roy B. Tarkington) Papa Roy's Cafe. Papa Roy and Ethel made the best cheeseburgers in the world (in my young eyes); Papa also had the WORLD'S GREATEST CHILI. Sadly, he never got around to telling anybody his recipe, and it died with him. My Mother, her sister, and their brothers have spent YEARS trying to re-create the chili recipe and the biscuit recipe. Thanks again for the smile!
