Hislop Reunion
PICT0340 Ale...


Note 1

!Notes: Estimated age based on Hislop family reunion picture, marriage date, and his and his children's apparent age in the picture.

!Note: I’m pretty sure that the older man sitting on the “well curb” in the back left is Sandy Hotchkiss. His wife was Jeannie Hislop [probably Ma]. All the rest would be his descendants and their spouses. The list from “the back” doesn’t seem to follow any order and although the number of names is right, there is one too few mean and the name Janet appears twice. I’m guessing the John going overseas and sitting next to Sandy was John Earhart [abt 1928]. I’m guessing there should be a comma between Carol and Clyde so that the man to the right in front is Clyde Burns, and Janet was accidently included twice.


I’m going to say the picture probably is as follows:

Back row: John Earhart [1933], Alex [Sandy] Hotchkiss[1869], Clyde Burns[1930], Marian Mussatto [1931], Ma - Jeannie Hislop [1879], Opal Cabbage Hotchkiss [1900], Laura Bell Johnson [1901], Janet Hotchkiss Musaatto [1896]

Front row: Edward Hotchkiss[1897], Orval Earhart [1906], Carol Earhart [1943], Harold Stodard[1898].
