Sunday, February 28, 1926

Grandma did not write in her diary on this day. I would guess they went to Sunday School and some would stay for church, which was their usual routine. Afterwards, they would have a nice Sunday dinner and spend the rest of the day relaxing.

Does your family ever discuss who looks like who in your family tree? Here's Aunt Marjorie's comment on that ,in response to my comment that I thought I looked a little bit like Aunt Bess (she doesn't necessarily agree that is who I look like, but she remembers the older Aunt Bess, and I'm just comparing myself to a picture of a younger Bess).

"Mother always said Eleanor and Albert looked like Smiths, Dale looked like Grandpa Cambell, Dick and I were Campbells and/or Jordans, and Ned was a changling. Mother always said if Ned been born in a hospital they must have switched babies!"

But Ned, along with all the other children, was born at home, so has to be claimed!

    If Dale looked like Grandpa Campbell, then Grandma (Ruth) looked like him as well. When he was in his 80's, he looked so much like how I remember Grandma looking, that they could have passed for twins. I saw a picture of him and thought it was Ruth.

  2. When I look at pictures of my grandmother and myself when we were each about 20 I think we look just alike. My sister and I have joked for years that one of us must be adopted because we think we look so different. Imagine her shock when someone I went to school with mistook her for me!

  3. When I was groing up the adults in the family would argue if I loo ked like Aunt Frances or Aunt Janie. I never knew either one of them but I do remember they said aunt Janie went mad. So I guess I would rather look like aunt Frances
