Treasure Chest Thursday - Granny M's Memory Bk pt12

Well, I took off last week because of going to the National Genealogical Society Conference in Cincinnati, Oh.

So now, back to the Memory Book that my grandmother & great-grandmother's created. This week's page is an extra sheet of paper that was stuck between two pages.

"Nov 2 - 1st big snow. 15 inches in Glasgow
Oct 29 Earl Munday had operation.
Nov 12, James Earl got married
Nov 14, James Earl & bride came to Eugene's
Nov 15, they came to my house.
Nov 17 I went with them to L-ville
They visited Gilbert's Gordon's & Joseph's
Nov 15, Aunt Gracie went to Texas
Nov 28 snowed again
Nov 29 Dale had chickenpox
Dec 6, I had my hair fix. Dec 7, I had my picture taken,
Dec 9, I went to William & Madolyn with Rev & Mrs Oliver. Dec 16 W. L brought me home."
Well isn't this exciting: Snow, marriage, chickenpox and hair fixing! I don't know how she managed.

Anyhow, now for a little more information on the people. James Earl is James Earl Munday, son of the above named Earl and nephew to my grandmother. Aunt Gracie is really her sister, Gracie DeSpain Towne. Dale is her grandson, Henry Dale Robertson, Jr. Oh yeah and L-ville is Louisville, Kentucky, where Gilbert, Gordon and Joseph all lived at the time.

I can't figure out the year that this happened, but I have the marriage date of James Earl and his wife in some of my records that I don't have in my database yet. :(  But I think I remember my mother telling me that James Earl came for a visit (you know it wasn't an everyday occurrence when out of town relatives came for a visit) in the late 60's, so I'll go with that for now.

Hope you enjoyed, glad you stopped by and please come back again ;)
