Barbara, I'm so happy to hear from you again. I have some photos of me and my grandfather at a Swinford reunion when I was very young. I'd guess they are at least 45 years old. Is the Swinford union still going on? Do you know where and when it will be held? I'd love to hear from you. Please feel free to email me direct.
A very quiet family rumor says Lavina's mother was Native American. Have you heard anything about that? Sheesh, I need to get back to my writing (I'm a journalist). Wish there were more hours in the day.
