We continue our reporting of the Wilson-Greer-Osborne and Associated Families Forum in July 2014 in Boone, North Carolina. What follows are informal pictures taken the night of July 18, 2014 at a get together dinner. Those around the table shared their lineages with me, and over the next postings, we will looking into our shared ancestry.
Below, left to right, are Betty Ankers, Linda Donnelly, Jackie Farrington, Kathryn Wilson, Gloria Heinburger and her husband, Wilbur, (partially obscured), Wendy Hodges and her father, Gary Hodges, our John Wilcoxson impersonator.
At the head of the table in light purple is Gloria Heimburger, the daughter of Boyd (1911-1972) and Lexie Lawrence Wilson (1912-1982). Gloria is a grand daughter of Arlie (1885-1956) and Bessie Wilson (1882-1976), who is a daughter of John (1855-1928) and Rebecca Wilson (1862-1954). John is one of the sons of Isaac (1822-1864) and Caroline Greer Wilson (1828-1911).

As we look at the group photograph, Kathryn Wilson, is to the left of Gloria. Kathryn is the daughter of Clyde (1912-2006) and Maude (Tincy) Wilson (1917-2010). Her grandparents are also Bessie and Arlie Wilson who took care of Rebecca (Becky) Wilson in her old age. Kathryn has inherited a chair owned by Becky and John Wilson.
