A Bit Of History.

Bloody blogger, it's jumbled these pictures up twice!!

James Flint, my paternal Great Grandfather 1834 - 1886

Mary Jane (Aya) Ranton, my maternal Grandmother.

Aya was a Drover and a Turkey Farmer and told the
scariest ghost stories I had ever heard. 1880 - 1953.

Charles Ernest Flint. my paternal grandfather, sadly
I never met him, he died six years before I was born.
1875 - 1930

Hugh Ranton, my maternal Grandfather.

I never met this one either, he died when I was only a
one year old. 1886 - 1937.

Margaret Phoebie Flint, my paternal Grandmother
I only knew her very slightly. 1876 - 1951.

Mary Jane and Hugh Ranton raised 10 children,
8 girls and 2 boys, Mary Jane was herself from a
family of 9.

Margaret Phobie and Charles Ernest raised 6 boys,
and Charles Ernest was also from a family of 9.

Hi Peter ~~ You have been busy again
with all our grandparents and one Great
grandparent. Just think about it ~ WE
are getting up to around their ages.
Not a wonderful thought. But I feel OK
How about you? Take care, Merle.

I LOVE the photos of your grandparents and great grandparents! Great pictures! I'm doing my geneology and pictures like that are priceless to have.
