Are You My Cousin?: A Birthday Tradition

Are You My Cousin?

Discovering My Ancestors -- One Cousin at a Time

My Photo
Location: Raleigh, North Carolina

I tell the stories of my ancestors’ lives. Whether they lived 20 years ago or 200 years ago, they each have a story to tell. Some ancestors tell their stories willingly. Others must have their stories carefully teased from the records. Sometimes the stories are sad. Sometimes the stories are happy. Sometimes the stories are just funny. Regardless, my ancestors’ stories shaped their lives and the lives of those that followed. Come and share in the tales!

A Birthday Tradition

Above is a picture of my great grandfather Connie M Howard.  He was born on 21 Nov 1891.  Every year the family would gather to celebrate his birthday on the Saturday after Thanksgiving.  This photo was taken at his 91st birthday (not his 19th!).  We were fortunate to celebrate his 103rd birthday before he passed away.

These are my grandparents Lester and Cecile (White) Howard at the birthday celebration.  I love this picture of the two of them.

Here is another photo of Connie Howard with a cousin that I do not know.  Cousins,  can someone identify the woman in the picture?  I would really appreciate the help.
