52 Ancestors 2018 Edition: Week #2 Favorite Family Photo

If you are not familiar with the 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks Blog Prompt series created by Amy Johnson Crow, check out her website. Here's the link:  https://www.amyjohnsoncrow.com/52-ancestors-in-52-weeks/

The prompt this week is "Favorite Photo." Tell the story of the people, place, and event in a favorite photo. Where did the photo come from? Who has the original now? How did you get a copy of it?

I have many family photos that I treasure. Who can pick just one? Well for this post I had to do just that. To tie this in with my post from week #1, I chose a picture of my maternal grandmother and her siblings. Years ago, I scanned a ton of pictures from my mother's collection. This was one of them.

If you missed Week #1's prompt, click here.  Ophelia Jones Bryant of Morehead City NC was my maternal great grandmother. She married my great grandfather Frank Bryant in 1911 and together they had seven children. This picture features five of those children. My grandmother Mary Bryant Harrison Horton is shown fourth from the left. 

The setting for this picture was the side yard of my great grandparents' house in Morehead City.
