Posting a photo here that just came into my hands. It was owned by my great aunt, Marcelene Rider Keenan, the daughter of Ulrich Rider (aka Honzura “Poppy” Rider) and Lottie Mae Wills. Hoping to find a relative who might be able to shed some light on his identity.
Helen Louise Boka, my grandmother on my father’s side, was born in Spring Hill or Ward, West Virginia on December 9th, 1920. Her parents were Joseph and Julianna Boka and they resided in or near Ward, West Virginia, an unincorporated coal mining town for most of Helen’s childhood.
Steve Boka taught local immigrants the English language as an outreach of the Ward West Virginia Hungarian Baptist church.
