Munshower Family and My Roots
My Direct line of Munshower's
My Dad, Ernest Sylvester Munshower this picture was taken when he retired from Pennsylvania Electric in 1964.
I received this photograph in 2007 from my former wife Debbie Lynch who received it from Mary Dee Schweppe. Mary Dee has been a friend of mine since we were kids. We believe this photograph is of my Mom when she was installed as the President of the Ladies Auxiliary to the VFW.

My Grandparents Harry and Dora (Muir) Munshower their wedding picture (we believe) taken October 26, 1904. Furnished by cousin Dennis Munshower
