My maternal great-grandparents Captain Joseph Hall Quillen (1874 - 1942) & Mary Perdue Quillen (1882 - 1948) with their children Lula O. (born 1899), in the center is Frederick Carl (born 1907, he was my grandfather) and sitting on the box is Joseph (born 1904). Capt. Quillen served in the United States Life-Saving Service (now called the Coast Guard) at Rehoboth Beach Life-Saving Station Number 141 in Dewey Beach, Delaware. This photo was taken about 1911. It's neat to see my great-grandfather in his USLSS uniform (look carefully at his hat) and I love the anchor detail on my grandfather's outfit.
