Echoes of my Ancestors The Wedding Day, circa 1915
Family roots run deep. In my heart I’m a young spirit but you can’t come from a big family without seeing and feeling the weight of life. My family has lived through hard times over multi- generations. The stories and photos tell so much. The older image included here is actually family on my maternal grandmother’s side.Four of them are most likely her brothers- James, John, Samuel and Robert. Some could be Uncles? Cousins?I’m compelled toward them wanting to know more and pushing it away at the same time.I’m sure we all can relate to this in some way.
