Happy Birthday, Papa

John William "Will" McCauley was born 137 years ago today.

  1. Happy Birthday to Will! He looks so grandfatherly. Isn't it interesting the difference in height between him and the young men I assume are his grandsons? As I see people grow taller than their ancestors I always wonder if it's genes or nutrition.

    1. Those are two of his sons but David and John were on the young end of 11 children. There were grandchildren older than David. The height comes from their mother's side, her brothers were all tall.
