A recent home flood caused me to move and sort ALOT of genealogy files and family mementos. Which is a very good thing in my case. Before you panic, don't worry, nothing of value was lost in the flood. I did get the opportunity to revisit alot of my research files and have found some 'new' leads and things that I can use in light of more recent discoveries. I have been trying to get more of it scanned and ready to email to cousins and post. This is a neat article I came across that I don't remember seeing before. This is a very dear uncle and aunt, Bobby and Frances Granath. Hope you like it !

Ogle Reunion 2013 Fun! Our Ogle/Hawkins Family Reunion 2013 was another great success this year - we had very close to 70 people and I believe there was enough food for 200! Wow, do we love to eat! I will be posting some photos of that event in just a short time today. As it usually does, it resparked my interest in everything genealogy related. I've been working this year on putting together a small book about our family's military service. This will be included in the book, as well as the few stories we have from our veterans. I promised to scan this family treasure to many of my cousins to share, so here it is. This was from my father's brother, Rolen Ogle.
