Mad Monday: Joe McNeal

Here is my aunt Maxine Buzzell about age 11 and my great grandparents "Nana" Myrtle (Brown) McNeal standing behind her husband Joe McNeal, about 1940 on the porch of their farmhouse on the Brown Road in Woodland, ME.
Joe is a roadblock. I wish I knew more.
He died shortly after this photo was taken when my father was just 10 years old. I know he was a potato farmer and a chain smoker. He had a son who took over the farm and 2 daughters (my grandmother Lena Rose and Dora.) My sister used to pick potatoes on the farm when she went for overnight visits to Nana's house which I only ventured to do once.
