The Huntington McBryde Kids

“McBrydes and Porter Kids.” Acrylic monotype by Stephanie Khattak.

This is a family photo of my great-grandmother (in green), her siblings and her cousins. The little boy in the overalls, my great-great uncle Sherman, grew up to be a WW2 soldier killed in action in Sicily. I imagine growing up with so many sisters and girl cousins made him pretty tough and a great mediator.
