This Full Circle has been done before..this is the third time. Remember the mystery of Aunt Fan?
Ida was Aunt Fan’s sister.. she married John Barnes.
Sarah Googled her great grandparents and found their photos on this blog. She contacted her sister Suzie the family historian.
My grandfather is John Beamont Barnes Jr.
my great grandfather John Beamont Barnes Sr
Ida Francis Hannant my great grandmother ....
We had always heard we were related to Benjamin Franklin ...and came across your forgotten photos with google search ....
Would love to know how you found these wonderful pictures John Barnes Sr. and Ida Hannant ...
Suzie contacted me the next day. I made her a CD copy of the photos and she in return sent me some photos.
I know how my readers love to see later in life photos of the people I feature here on the blog.

Connie this is Ida Hannant Barnes on her front porch. The picture is not good. I am sending it because she was a BEAUTIFUL quilter. My sister and I have three of her quilts. Mother always had one of her grandmother's quilts on her bed as long as I can remember. Up until the time Mother passed.
Hi Connie, Thank you for the cd. I received it this afternoon. I'll send a little donation with a big thank you.
It is wonderful what you are doing. These pictures would have been lost to my family. I think they are a treasure.
I don't have many stories, but I do remember. I had asked my mother about her life and I was having her write it down, as we drove to Mobile, Alabama, from Pensacola. She said her favorite vacation was to go see her Grandmother and Grandfather Barnes. They gave her dolls with beautiful doll clothes. I think that says something... means they were nice sweet people. You can't fool children. Thanks again.
I like to leave a bit of a trail with the photos and where they were sent.
These photos were sent to Ruth in Texas. Her Grandmother Edna Mae was Fan and Ida’s sister. Full Circle 15
