Helen Melvina Groesbeck Morgan and her granddaughters. 1930 census.

Doesn’t this look like a happy gathering? That is great grandmother Helen Melvina (Mellie) Groesbeck Morgan sitting on the front porch of her Bryan Avenue home with her granddaughters, about the time the following census was taken [April 1930].

Last Monday, May 23, 2011, I shared another happy gathering with those granddaughters, meeting them for the first time. A group of granddaughters caravanned to a restaurant to meet, get acquainted, reminisce, listen, learn, and enjoy new found cousins.

These John Hamilton and Helen Melvina (Mellie) Groesbeck Morgan descendants, and the Morgan children they descend through are; L-R Dawn—John Hamilton [II], Helen (Peg)—John Hamilton [II], Flora Lee—Bessie, Irma—John Hamilton [II], Karen—Nicholas Groesbeck, (in front) Marjorie—Nicholas Groesbeck, Gail—Gail, Bessie—Bessie.

I was saddened to learn Marjorie passed away Sunday morning, and extend my sincere condolences to her family. I’m so grateful for everything that worked together for me to reconnect with Marjorie, and ultimately meet her family. I rejoice in her example, and the rich legacy of preserving and sharing family history she left us.
