A Cousin Found Me!

We received a nice e-mail over the holidays from a gentleman who found us through this blog, and we are related through a great grandfather born in 1834.  Pretty neat!... and he has pictures and family history that we haven't seen.  Of course we have been sending New-To-Him information and photos, too.  It's all great fun.  Here are a couple of Aunt/Uncle/Cousin photos he will be getting soon.

 That's May at the steering wheel, Iva next to her, and my Great-Grandmother Myrtle's forehead over Iva's left shoulder. That's a 1914 license plate.  I wish I knew something about the old car, other than acetylene lights were obsolete in 1914.

And here are all the Garrison Girls; Iva, Pearl, May, Myrtle, Bessye; Nelson and Lovilla, the parents.  Myrtle was one of my Great-Grandmothers, and the one I remember best. The photos came down to me through Bessye.

It's always nice to learn about your ancestors. My baby sister has been doing the family history for at least twenty years. Found a few surprises along the way, most of them good.
