Photos: Ralph and Kerlin Landis Family


Ralph Landis (1905-1975) was the the oldest child of Charles J. and Freddie Landes, and the grandson of Daniel A. and America R. Landes. Ralph married Kerlin Sponaugle (1917-1991) and they had eight children: John, Charles, Ralph Junior, Kitty Ann, Olin, Dolly Jean, Jimmy, and Larry.
