H is for history..

family history.

I was playing around on ancestry.com yesterday and decided to upload some photos from my uncle's books on my mom's side of the family. While I was doing so, I discovered some other photos another member of the website had already loaded..it was neat that she put photos to some of the same people in my tree..

I want to share these photos here because they represent my family history and my ancestors. The first 2 are from my uncles' books and the rest are from other ancestry.com members.

This is my great grand father, B.H. Runyon, on my mom's dad's side of the family.

My great grand mother, Lillian T. Reed with her Grand Union Tea Co. truck. My grandfather (on left) and his brother Russell are hanging out the window looking out. I would like to get some more information on these tea trucks..

Some ancestors..just look at their clothes. Fancy.

1901, upon the occasion of their wedding; Charles & Lelia Kagey. This just looks like a scene out of Back to the Future..fancy! These are distant cousins of mine.

This man, Noah Good, was born in 1823 in Shenandoah, VA, and died in the same town in 1903. He was a day laborer, and married to Julia A. Campbell. He enlisted in the war at the age of 40 in 1863, on the confederacy side, and he served in Virginia. He is my 4th great grandfather on my maternal grandmother's side (my great great great great grand father). Pretty neat piece of history.


  1. I need to get some copies of those photos for my other family scrapbook I want to make. Grandma is sooo cute! I miss her. :*(

  2. feel free to take any from flickr/my blog. i found some random person on ancestry that had a bunch of the kageys on there. weird.
