6 Generations at 1515

I am having unexpected guests
at 1515 this weekend.
I had not planned to be there but will be headed there
Saturday morning.
The youngest guest will be sleeping in her
Great Great Grandmother's bedroom.
I hope someday they appreciate the
significance of that.
Generation 1 
My Great Grandmother
Catherine
she lived at 1515 during the depression

Generation 2
My Grandmother
Mary Elizabeth
1515 was her home from
1926 until her death in 1957

Generation 3
Catherine Belle
named after her 2 Grandmothers
lived at 1515 from
1926 until she got married in 1942

4th Generation
Martha Catherine
named after her Great Grandmother and Mother.
my first cousin

Generation 5
Jennifer Rene
she is the little girl on the left
standing in front of her Mother Martha
I am on the rt
it was my Grandfathers 90th birthday in
1977
dining room at 1515 almost the same spot as where Marty was sitting
Marty and Jen 
kitchen 1515

Generation 6
Chloe Rose
her sister Claire Catherine (yes the Catherine name continues)
won't be there but Chloe will.

Marty is so good about bringing her family over.
Jennifer has 3 wonderful children and I am so 
proud of her.
As busy as they are Jen and her husband 
find time to bring their children home 
to their Great Great Grandparents home.
The know the importance of family.

I am sure Catherine, Mary Elizabeth and
Catherine Belle are happy looking upon this site.

Wow! That is incredible Ann! Not many people are lucky enough to still go to their Granparents homes and here you've had 6 generations there. Very, very fun!
Take care,

That is wonderful that you still get together...Thank you for sharing your story ....
