Wordless Wednesday: The Ocean View Gang


Wordless Wednesday is a daily prompt at Geneabloggers that asks family historians to create a post in which the main focus is a photograph or image.

The Gang

Since summer will be officially over next week, it’s appropriate to say farewell to my great-aunt Helen Killeen Parker’s friends who have been the subject of many Wordless Wednesdays.  What does anyone do when a party or vacation or celebration is drawing to a close?  Take a group photo.  That’s probably what Helen and “the gang” did before everyone bid farewell to Ocean View and headed home to resume their workaday lives.

    1. Yeah, now I need to come up with something else! Too bad Helen didn't leave a bunch of hayrides and harvest photos.

    1. I wish Helen had shown me her album before she died so I could have gotten the back story on that.

  4. Wendy, somehow I missed the name Helen Killeen Parker until today. I do have a Helen Killeen in my database, but not with that married name. Funny how the eye gets arrested by name similarities after years of doing genealogy research...

  6. Wish we knew where the house was located in the "O-V" I wonder if it was near where Edith and Millard had a place.
