Ruth's Genealogy

“And in the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years.”

Well, I guess it blocks a bit of sun, at least:

This lady is my third great-grandmother, Susan William Lee Martin Kennedy. She was the wife of Dr Nathan Blunt Kennedy, one of my Civil War surgeon ancestors.

The lady of the right is my great-grandmother, Mary Tennessee Turner. This photo is from about 1910. Mary is here with a couple of close cousins. Girls Night Out!

Another photo of Mary Tennessee Turner, here as a Woman of Mystery!

“Bubba” Rogers was a railroad man all of his life, so he certainly knew the value of a good straw hat!
