aa-union-church.jpg

This is a picture of the Union Church, located between Taylortown and Rockford, Texas, in Lamar County. Mary Ann (age 7) is pictured here. Also her her two sisters, Joan and Peggy (Jan wasn't born yet), her parents, Mack & Mary Gordon. Also both sets of her grandparents, Henry & Myrtle Gordon, (Mack's parents), and Thomas & Mada Jenkins (Mary's parents). Several of Mary Ann's aunts, uncles, and cousins are in the picture also. The picture was taken April 22, 1946. Enlarged pictures are below with names. We divided the picture into six sections so they would be enlarged enough to see their faces.
