Ted Kennedy – The Lion Is At Rest

Just so recently I posted about Ted’s sister, Eunice Shriver & her contribution to our family. Now Ted Kennedy is gone, too.  To Eunice Shriver & Ted Kennedy, their Special Olympics, & the health & education programs that they provided us, we owe a debt and so much gratitude. Because of them, our cousin Bobby Brush, born with down syndrome, has lived better & longer than expected. For  the life Bobby has enjoyed, and for our joy in Bobby’s life,  our family says – Thank you, Ted Kennedy.

Quantrill’s Guerillas Family Member

David Owings sent me this fabulous photo. David is a 3rd great grand nephew of the brothers Gabriel George, Hiram J. George, and John Hicks George, all Quantrill Guerillas. The photo relates to guerilla John Hicks George who later became a doctor. At the time, becoming a doctor only took about 18 months of study. David and I are speculating if this is a class photos for John Hicks George while in medical school.

James D. Peterson – JD51P@aol.com – has provided these new images of the grave site of his great grandparents Mary Harriet James & Daniel J. Owens. Another image of the tombstone of his grandparents William Andrew “Willie” Owens & Centennial Adkins. And a third image of his mother Mary Magdeline “Maggie” Owens, who was formerly mis-identified as Margaret Owens. Also, please note his name is Peterson, and not Patterson.
