Family reunions, family photos

Aunt Mary

This weekend I’m going to a reunion of my Aunt Mary’s family, her kids and grandkids and great-grandkids.  Aunt Mary passed away many years ago, and I wish I had paid more attention to her, but when you’re a snot-nosed punk kid, you think old folks will be around forever.  Then all of a sudden, you realize you’re not far from being “old folks” yourself, and you start to pay attention (often too late) to the ones around you that are left.

I have two photos from the first of the reunions, from back in 1968 or ’69.  The one this year should be neat, I’ll get to see family I haven’t seen in decades.  Of course, half the time will be spent trying to (re-)learn peoples’ names, since we’ve all changed a bit down through the years, and my, um, something or other isn’t as good as it used to be!   I don’t think…

(For a larger version, click in the picture.  You can save the larger picture in the usual way, or if you just want the smaller one, right-click on it and pick “Save Linked Image” or whatever your browser says.)

This is Aunt Mary and her kids, most of whom I know the names but not the faces to go with.

    Andrew,
    Sorry you missed the Edwards Family reunion. Heard about your travel problems. We all had a great time. We really enjoyed meeting your sister Anna Lou and Bob and niece Becky and her family. I am Dan Smith husband of Jane Edwards who is Mary Hill Edward’s granddaughter. Her father was Johnson Calvin (J.C) Edwards. Second from the right, back row of the picture.
    I guess that I am the “unofficial” family genealogist even though I’m not an Edwards! Wendy Enos, who you have had contact with, is the other family history expert. Very glad that we all have a Hill side of the family contact now.. I here you have done much family history work. Will be glad to share any info you might need or want. Your sister has my contact info. Nice website!
