Happy Anniversary to my cousin Mary Claire and her husband Dick. They were married this week in October 1976. The picture was taken at the Stafford Country Club in Stafford, NY. I love everything about this picture – Mary Claire is gorgeous. All 5 of the Marshall children are here with spouses as are many of the Marshall cousins. The clothes and hairstyles are fabulous!
This is not a very old picture, but I sure do love it a lot. After many years of talking about having a family reunion, we actually did it. This is a picture of the Marshall cousins (grandchildren of Ed and Ida Pfundstein Marshall). We were missing a few but fairly well represented nonetheless. The reunion was held where I live, Seven Springs in Batavia, NY, on August 8, 2011. It was such a great day to spend with our cousins!!
Even though the picture is only 6 yrs old, we have lost 2 cousins from this group as well as 2 aunts and an uncle. 10 days after the picture was taken, my husband and I welcomed our third son to the family! There have been several more little ones added over the years as well.
Even though we are scattered all over, we still get together when we can. We haven’t had a reunion quite this big in a few years – maybe time to start planning again…
