Photographs


robertejohnson1Today marks the 30th anniversary of my Great Grandfather Robert Eugene Johnson’s death. I don’t remember him at all, though I had to have been seven when he died. I get them impression that there is still a lot of anger and hurt surrounding his and my great-grandmother’s seven year marriage but I also know that if not for that union, I would not be here.

One note on the picture:  I have no idea who the woman with him is. She’s possibly a second wife before my Step-Great-Grandmother Rita?

Happy hunting!

The annoying thing is, he could even make baggy plaid look cute. What do you do with a baby brother like that?

Have a happy birthday, dude!

Found this while hunting around for something else. The sisters are my Great Aunt and my Grandmother. The poor kid cut out at the top is their younger brother. I believe the girl in the box is a cousin but I’m going to have to double check that.

Happy hunting,

Jess

BradleyCountyCoupleBradley County researchers, this one’s for you! My family has no idea who these two are. They could be Trotters, Yorks or just friends of the family. We have no idea. We just found this picture among my Grandmother’s photos (along with this one). Anyone recognize this happy looking couple?

As an aside, the woman reminds me so much of someone I went to school with as a child in Michigan.

Happy hunting,

Jessica

 

GraninaTreeFinally!!!  It’s time to get out and commune with nature (like my Gran here)… or at the very least hang out on the back porch by the grill.

Happy hunting!

Mom & I, May 2002.

Jess, 1978Because I reserve the right to find embarrassing pictures of the rest of my family, it’s only fair to post one of myself.

I’m ready for some birthday fun in the sun by the pool!

Happy hunting!

Jess
