Jeannette, I am a descendent of Joseph and Mary (Horsick)Bean of Yakima, Washington.Their son Joseph married Edith Celeste Rackliff, together they had four children and raised them in Yakima. Their daughter Grace Bean was my grandmother.
My mother and father brought Joe and Edith to Kelowna in the late 1950's to visit with Aunt Emma, Uncle John and Aunt Kate. That meeting was the first time Joe had seen his sister Emma in over 30 years!I have black and white photographs of that reunion.
My mother, sisters and I are anxious to reconnect with our Bean cousins in Canada! I hope you will reply quickly and we can share information and photographs!
