The pretty young girl in this photo is my maternal grandmother, who was about eighteen at the time. It was taken around 1934. It's a 5 generation picture: my grandmother, whom we called "Mimmie," her first-born son, her father (Poppa - holding the baby), Poppa's mother, and her father, who would be my great-great-great grandfather. (Is that clear as mud?)
I had never seen this photo before, but at the reunion my uncle, who was the baby in the picture, gave each of us a copy of it. I LOVE it! I had never seen my grandmother looking quite so young as she does in this picture.

Two of the cousins were missing.

Here's my dear Uncle Roy, the baby in the top picture, now the patriarch of the family. The four people on the left side of the picture are his children.
