Paul. Two years after he was born, the battle of the ‘Little Big Horn’ took place, and the defeat of General Custer, by Chief Crazy Horse, and his combined Red Indian tribes, including the Cheyenne.
My grandmother was eleven years old, at the time, she died in 1950, aged eighty seven, when I was sixteen.
New Hudson motorcycle, built 1909-1957. Springer front forks with a plunger rear unit setup. Was that his bike Paul, quite a nice piece of kit back in the day
3 really good pics Paul, thanks for sharing them
Paul. Sorry. Your great grandad would have been twelve years old, not two years old, and my grandmother thirteen years old, when the battle took place. The battle took place in 25th, June, 1876.
I'm sorry WN1 Standisher I don't know whether it was his bike, I don't know that much about him I'm afraid other than what official records say.
Another good photo Paul, of your ancestors.I wish I had some of mine!!
Not to worry Paul, it's a great photograph. He looks in his element
