The early evening phone call

I recieved a phone call from a person I didnt know that was at a salvation army and bought a file cabinet. Inside this file cabinet she said she found quite a few pictures from some current color photos to some dating back to the early 1900's.

I have always tried to trace back my family tree but it has been pretty unsuccessful. I know my Grandpa was born in somewhere around Rochester, NY his name was Edmund DeGraw.
He served in the coast guard in St. Joseph, Michigan before WWII and was sent to train troops on Island landing just before the war started.

Anyways, The person is going to mail me the pictures and should see them in the mail around saturday. She said some are quite old and some new in color. If anyone is interested reply to this and I will share the details.
