I was contacted by one of my cousins about information on our common family tree. My Grandmother was Ola Martin Pearson. My Cousin, Melba McNeely Stewart was the daughter of Catherine Pearson McNeely. Catherine was the daughter of Lelia Ethel Martin Pearson. Ethel was my Grandmother's sister. Both married Pearsons, but not directly related Pearsons.
Melba sent me a link to pictures she had placed on Ancestry.com. In the pictures was a picture of Twins that looked a familiar to me. I had pictures of myself when I was six, taken with a pair of twins. I do not remember the picture being taken or who the people in the picture were. My Mother was good about labeling pictures, but all I knew was the adults were Uncle Henry and Aunt Ethel and they were "Pearson Relatives". The twins were just "The Twins". Catherine was also labeled by her first name only.
So I have had these pictures and not known who they were.
Upon examination of the pictures, with this new information, I recognize my Grandmother in one of the Pictures. In the Picture above are Melvin and Melba McNeely.
The Picture below is of Me and the twins. (If you click on these pictures you can view the larger original pictures)
Below are Lelia Ethel Martin Pearson and Henry Clay Pearson at their home in Bryan, Texas.
Catherine is the woman hugging her son Melvin. I am not sure who the other people in the picture are that have not yet been named.
In the corner of the porch is Ola Martin Pearson, my Grandmother and Ethel's Sister.
Last is a group picture.
