Our Family Has Grown

Song - Family Tradition by Hank Williams Jr.

Some chapeau huh?  

I have been working on my family tree since I was a teenager and would record my Italian grandparents stories and share family photos.  It is something I have always been fascinated by.  It is kind of like putting together a puzzle and making sure everything fits.

Since September 17th, I have an even larger family thanks to Andy & Ashley's wedding!

The woman in the photo above is named Amy Wilson Ross 
and she is Ashley's second Great-Grandmother. 
Isn't she a beauty?

This is her husband, George Clark Matson -
Ashley's second Great-Grandfather.

Above is a "selfie" taken in the 1870's. Such a handsome couple.

Then they had children.....
and her sister moved in....

Mama is looking pretty good still but dad is losing his spark.
They had 3 more children after this was taken.
Just imagine that photo!
