My Grandfather

I was grading search engine assignments yesterday when I came across a genealogical website for the McCown family. I came across my grandfather's record: Frank Edward McCown, 1902-1965. They even had a photo of his headstone in Stockdale, Texas. The last time I saw this headstone I was probably 10.

Although I'm named after him, my grandfather never knew me. He passed away a few weeks before my father, an only child, graduated from college. The only things I know about him are what my dad shares from time to time. It was neat to find him on this website.
