Wordless Wednesday: Family Photos

This is going to be a not so Wordless Wednesday post. For the last few days I have spent time with my Grandmother going through the old family photos. The stories and names to numerous to count. So I present some of my findings:

The baby is my Great Grandmother Christine Long {June 3, 1916-1963}
with her parents Pennington [Pen] Long {1894-?} and Mary Ida (Rhinehimer) Long {1897-?}
And yes, in case you were wondering Pen is missing a finger.

We all grow up with the weight of history on us. Our ancestors dwell in the attics of our brains as they do in the spiraling chains of knowledge hidden in every cell of our bodies. ~Shirley Abbott
