Uncle Broadus’ Picnic, Saturday June 2nd.
June 13, 2007
June 1st was the 83rd birthday of Mother’s oldest brother, Broadus Chriscoe. On Saturday the 2nd, his family had a surprise picnic party for him at his house, inviting all his brothers and sisters and their families. I drove down to his house in the Union Grove community in Moore County with Mother and Roman.
Someone from every branch of the family was there except for Aunt Vera’s, who is down in Atlanta. Kenneth cooked burgers and hot dogs on the grill, and everyone else brought something, so it was a typically-overstocked American picnic. Aunt Mona Rae brought a banana pudding, which I liked the best. (BTW: The skinniest people in these photos are obviously not Chriscoes… besides Roman, there are the boyfriends of Patricia’s daughters Heather and Amber. )
I used part of the time to collect names and dates for the Chriscoe side of our family tree which I’ve put into the geneaology program at Ancestry.Com (one of those Mormon programs, stored forever in a salt mine out West). Anyone can check it out; this is the link to my tree, which will show both the Whatley and Chriscoe sides: http://trees.ancestry.com/pt/pedigree.aspx?tid=2384080&pid=-1844418166&pg=0
