I’ve taken up a new challenge. I will blog about one of my ancestors every week this year. That will be 52 Weeks and 52 Ancestors. It could be a story, a biography, a photograph, an outline of a research problem — anything that focuses on one ancestor. I think that each week I will feature an ancestor who’s birthday is in that week.
I’ll start with an easy one. My first subject will be my mother, Sylvia Marie Tennant Stevens Wolf Cruff who’s birthday is today, 7 January. She was born in 1924 in Vinita, OK.
This is her on the right along with her mother, Martha Marie Wright Tennant and my two girls, Pamela and Nicole Rasmussen. This picture was taken at the tea house at the Japanese Gardens in Portland, OR on the occasion of Pamela’s high school graduation. We were living in Portland at the time and my mother and grandmother had driven up with my step-father, Delbert Cruff. They were living in San Jose, CA and my grandmother lived not too far away in Grover City, CA.
