Finally making the trip, she settled in Kentucky with her husband and children. She was a baker and she took in boarders to supplement her coal miner husband's pay. He was also a carpenter and a Methodist minister.
Thomas and Susannah had five more children in the States. The first born here was my grandmother.
In this family photo with my great grandmother is my great-aunt Catherine at age nineteen. Catherine was born in 1895. Susannah was forty-four at that time.
I have some friends who would like to show you their family albums and tell you their family stories today. They have their albums open for you to see each Friday. Some Fridays they show us vintage photos, some Fridays there are newer photos. The list of participants is below. I hope you will visit them and be sure to leave a comment!
