I hope that you can assist me. I have pictures that belonged to my grandfather. I have recently been going thru them and have found some pictures of, it looks like, a funeral,
memorial, etc. and the name on the stand is Emilio Carranza. There are 6 men in one of the pictures and 2 men in the other one. My grandfather is one of the 6 men. I am
wondering if this is the same Emilio Carranza, the aviator. Also wondering where these were made, and I don't know why my grandfather would have been there. It is most
interesting to me. If you think this is something of your interest, you can email me back. I would be more than happy to make you a copy of the pictures and maybe the other
gentlemen could be identified.
Thank you for your time.

I really don't know a lot about my grandfather. That is one reason we wondering who these men were in the picture, etc. His name was
Robert Londy Burch, Sr. He was from
Fort Worth, Texas, but traveled a lot and what he did I am not sure. I know that at some time I remember that my family went to visit him in Denver Co. He was in some kind of
oil/uranium, business or something. There isn't anyone left in the family to ask and I am so curious about these pictures. I have several others that I will make copies of in the
next couple of days and send to you, to see if you can identify where they were made. He died in 1962, and I am not for sure how old he was, but I believe he was in his 60's.
I also looked on Google for the book. I will look again as I didn't find anything. I would like very much to see it.
