James Adair, unknown female. 1933. Forwarded to me by Alice Adair’s great-granddaughter, Melanie (Collins) Pennock,
who got it from Alice Adair’s great-granddaughter-in-law, Heidi Willoughby. Apparently taken from a print of a home movie!
I will find out if the home movie still exists.

1911 Barr Reunion. Photo provided by Susan Rogers, great-great-great-granddaughter of Elizabeth Barr (sister of
Hamilton Barr/daughter of John Barr.) Susan scanned it in 7 sections due to the size, and I stitched it back together,
so some of faces might not align perfectly.

    I was so excited to see these pictures. My grandfather was Charles Adair. The boy he is holding I believe is my brother Eddy. The picture of all the siblings was taken in 1942. I have grandpas diary and he talks about that reunion. He died just before I was born. I have the large picture of the Barr reunion and my mother is sitting in the front by the buggy. Her mother is behind he and her brothers on her right.I don’t believe my grandfather could make it. Were you at the 1980 reunion at Jerry Adairs? I have some family group shots that I don’t know who they are.One group is a little girl about 4 or 5 standing in front of a lady(mother?)with dark hair and beside her is an older lady with salt and pepper hair and glassed and beside her is a lady with short blond hair and next to her is a tall man with glasses. A couple of them look like people in your pictures. I also have one of Aunt Graces paintings and a niece has another one. I enjoy genealogy and was so glad to see the pictures you have. I am looking forward to hearing from you.
