This week's Sepia Saturday photograph shows ladies having a picnic on the grass. That reminded me of photographs of picnics at my Grand Aunt Wava's house in Ohio. She & Uncle Alvin had a terrific old farm house with a long porch along the side. Many family picnics were held on the farm. Aunt Wava & Uncle Alvin had warm hearts and always welcomed family. They loved to host gatherings when we folks from New York State came to visit. There would be a long table in the house that could barely hold the weight of all the home made food. There would be people scattered through the yard holding plates full of food and catching up with the family news.
Second from the left is my great grandfather, Thomas K Mark. He was my father's maternal grandfather.
Thomas K Mark is in the center of this photo with Roy Nee, son in law, on the left and Eslie Guy Mark, brother, on the right.
Here is the same farm house in 1993 with my children playing together. My father, my children & I were visiting & I was collecting genealogy information & copying family photographs.
