So we were excited earlier this year to take a 4 generation of the Hammon-Brooks-Norton-Cox family. I've uncovered another 4 generation photo here at Silver Lake New York just hanging on the refrigerator. So to honor these events I am posting the three different 4-gen photos in my data base.
Here's my newest discovery:
The very tiny man in the middle of this photo is James Nelson Hackett, affectionately known as Grandpa Hackett. I wrote about him here. This picture was taken at Butler PA on Easter Sunday, April 1968 at the home of his daughter, Gladys Dorothy Hackett Palmer. Grandpa Hackett died the next year in April of 1969.
Gladys is the small woman next to him and they are both standing in front of her very tall husband, Nelson Pattison Palmer. To Nelson's right is his son-in-law, Clinton Edward Norton, and his daughter, Doris Jennie Palmer Norton. Nelson and Gladys' youngest daughter, Dianne Kay Palmer Wetjen is on their left (and her husband Alan Wetjen is probably taking the photo).
The three adorable children are Eve, Phillip Nelson and Chris Norton. It's so cool that this time the youngest generation is old enough to remember their great-grandfather. Here's how it looks in a chart:

Here is a picture from my side of the family (which I published previously here):
