Nearly Wordless Wednesday: Brothers and Sisters



These are my maternal great aunts and uncles and my grandmother, the sons and daughters of John Taylor Roberts and Catherine Margaret Young. This photograph was taken in 1947 at the J.T. Roberts house (what we call "the Big House") on Wells Street in Valdosta, Georgia. Seated in foreground is Dinah (Mary Remer) Roberts Parramore. Seated behind her is Edwina (Midge) Roberts. Standing, left to right: Martha Leona Roberts Redles (my maternal grandmother), Margaret Roberts Graham, Stella Roberts Pendleton, John Young Roberts, Maie Dell Roberts Covington, Kathleen Roberts Winn, and William Leland Roberts.

    Thanks Mariann! I've always felt close to this family. Seven of them were still living while I was growing up. Uncle John Young died the year before I was born and my grandmother died a few months after I was born. I loved going to the Big House :)
