This is a picture of Nanny, as Emma Reed was known to all her grandchildren, and most of those grandchildren. We had many wonderful summertime reunions at her house in Long Beach, MS. That's me, Jill, on the far left. I have left this image as a thumbnail as it is too large for regular viewing even though it is not clear. Those who wish to may click on it and see a large version with numbers superimposed on each person. I have listed each person by number below and ask that if anyone finds a mistake to please let me know. My mother, Wenonah, and Aunt Dee Dee, numbered these for us.1. Kenny Reed 2. Dale Ihnat 3. Pat Ray 4. Johnny Reed 5. David Reed 6. Jill McLeester 7. Ida Reed 8. Bertie Reed
Not pictured Michael Ray, Bill Reed, Daniel Reed
