> Thanksgiving 2004


In the middle of a driving snow storm we took off from St. Louis for Columbia, SC for a short Thanksgiving vacation. Chuck’s family traces their roots in South Carolina to before the Revolutionary War. This is the first time Frances and Katherine have visited the state where so much of their family history has occurred.

Chuck’s second cousin Susan, a United Methodist minister, hosted a wonderful and tasty Thanksgiving dinner for the family. Susan is the first cousin of Chuck’s mother Judy.

We stayed at Rock’s house. Rock is Chuck’s grandfather and Frances and Katherine’s great-grandfather. Many relatives stopped by to visit us at the house.

The picture above is of Chuck and the twins with Tonya and Debra, Chuck’s two first cousins. Check out the rest of the photos. We have one good looking family.
