Brumfield Reunion, 1943 MS

Newspaper reports of family reunions offer lots of family information. This newspaper article centers on Henry and Mary who had their children and grandchildren visiting in May 1943. The visiting families came from various parts of Mississippi, Alabama & North Carolina. It is a small reunion but contains three generations of information.
