This is a picture my cousin gave me of both sides of my mother's family. Between Ida and Minnie is Judith Tague Avritt, my step-great-grandmother. Seated in front of her is my great-grandfather John Franklin Avritt. His daughter, my grandmother, Nannie Avritt McMurtrey, is first on the left back row; my grandfather, George McMurtrey, is seated in front of her with my mother on his lap. I believe this was taken in the fall of 1910. The only other family name in the picture is Goslin. I don't know of any connection between the Avritts/McMurtreys and the Owens/Layne/Shannon families, yet they are all in this picture. I'd love to find out if these folks tie in together somehow.
