Eatonton, Georgia, was the site of our 2006 family reunion, because Michael's grandmother grew up there. Vivian, Andrew and I had also been here in April 2004 for a mini-reunion. We saw several important places, including Grandmother's old church, the college she graduated from in the 1920s, the first school she taught in, and various old cemeteries hidden in backyards and forests. Robert (far right in the first two photos) lives in the Eatonton area, and he graciously helped us find these interesting places. He has done a lot of research into our family history, and had many interesting stories to tell. The first DeJarnettes arrived in the Eatonton area in 1796. (We also used Robert's camera for the wide family photo below.) I count 44 DeJarnettes, Holmstroms and Kriglines at this historic gathering.

The inset photos are of grandmother Sarah when she was six, then when she married my grandpa, then with grandchildren Cheryl and Lisa (I think!), then with great-granddaughter Carolyn, and finally with my mom and uncle when their mother was 99.

This is Michael's family. Bottom left to right: Ed & Kathy (Michael's younger sister) and their children Philip and Amy. Upper left to right: Elise (Mom), Kevin (big brother) & Fran with their three children Clair, Carolyn and Alan (with Carolyn's fiancÚ between her and Clair), Alan (Dad), our daughter Beth (with her first husband behind her), Vivian, Michael and Andrew.

"Cousins" in order from oldest to youngest (i.e., the children of Michael's mother and her brother)

This was the last time we were with Grandmother Sarah (at age 99). We took this photo in Florida, during a short visit in May (2004). Michael's Grandmother was born in October 1904, and passed away in July 2005 (over 100 years old). Our "current update" for October 2004 talks about her life.

 Here, some of us are standing in front of Grandmother's childhood home (during our April 2004 mini-reunion). Michael's uncle is on the right, then Michael's mom, then Bill (Mom's cousin), and Michael on the left.
