Biographical Note

McRae, and Omer Boyce Alewine who typically went by his middle name. Also featured in the scrapbook is a woman named La Verne Dicey Bratton who has several pages of photographs dedicated to her. She and Boyce were married in 1918. Alewine passed away in 1971 and Bratton passed away in 1987.
