Meet the family for April 3, 2011


Henrietta Earnest
is 193 years old today, born in 1818. Rietta, as we liked to call her, is the boys' 4th great-grandaunt.  She is the 8th child of the 11 born to Jacob A. Earnest and Elizableth Sims.  The 7th child was Rachel Earnest, the boys' 4th great-grandmother who married Resin D. Brown and begot Charlotte Brown in 1839, the 4th child of 12 they had.

Morgan R. Cleveland

  Morgan is the boys' 1st cousin 6 times removed.  His mother is Nancy Ann Cotton, the sister of 5th great-grandfather, Ira Cotton, who married Sally Gold in 1811 and begot Samuel Cheney Cotton in 1815.


Roland Max Myer
is 79 years old today, born in 1932. Dick Myer is a living legend.  The stories about his world class generosity, his flawless ethics and his unconditional love for his family are endless.  We all know that Dick is Ella, Mason and Caitlyn's Great-grandfather and that Dick and Ella Ween Brown married March 31, 1956 in Trenton, GA.  And I'm sure you know that he and Ella Ween begot "the Myer Girls", Nancy Darlene Myer in 1956 who went on to married the love of her life, Jerry Wooden.  They have one pointer, Quag Myer.  Then came Beverly Joan Myer in 1958 who married Jimmy Dale Hawkins and they begot two amazing children, Brandon Max Hawkins who married the beautiful, Sherinda Frost, and Cristy Dale Hawkins who married the virtually perfect, Kevin "Big'un" Jennings and they begot, Caitlyn Jennings.  Then Beverly married the rock solid Brent Stewart Naugher, who already had Calum Stewart Naugher, with kids of his own and Tara "teacher of the year" Modesa Naugher.  Then Dick and Ella Ween begot Thereasa Ellen Myer on their anniversary of all things, in 1961 while living in Atlanta, GA.  Thereasa married the stone man, Duard Robert Hulgan and proceeded to beget, three girls of their own.  Kellie Marie Hulgan born in 1980 settled down with a great man, Aaron Hosler and became a fantastic mother to Ella Marie Hosler in 2008.  We can't wait to see the future of that little one. Then along came Heather Leigh Hulgan in 1983 who married a all round great guy, Jeremy Knowles.  They of course begot Mason Knowles.  Then finally came Haley Dabeth Hulgan.  So, long story short, you probably know all of that about Roland Max Myer, but did you know that I love him as though he was my own father?  I'm sure you do too.  We love you Dick, have another great birthday!
