This picture was taken in late November 1981 and it was the last time I saw my Aunt Dorothy Thornton Andrews before she died the following year. Aunt Dorothy was from Enfield, NC and had moved to New Jersey when she was a young woman. During my freshman year in college, my maternal grandmother Emma and I took a trip to Newark, New Jersey for Thanksgiving to visit relatives. Aunt Dorothy and her husband James (sitting in chair) lived in East Orange, NJ, which is a close to Newark. I am not sure who the young boy was picture in this photo. Perhaps he was a boy from the neighborhood.
Aunt Dorothy was a sister of my grandfather Minor Elwood Thornton.
