Hi Lisa,

How rude of me to forget Auntie Berta's side of the family! I remember
when we lived on the island in '61-'62, I spent lots of time at "Aunt Ila's"
house. I don't really remember you though. Hope we can meet & talk at the big PAR-TAY!

Mel

Hi Mel, This is Peggy White. Maybe you do not remember her because she was born in 64' I was born in 60' We are Betty's youngest. We did not go to the island very often, about once a year. Looking forward to meeting you all at the party!

So I realized that I put the wrong dates in my message to Lisa.
It was actually 1964-65ish that we lived there. I'm not tellin' the
year of birth but will just say Mark & I were the babies of the class
as the only 2 in "kindeegarden".......

Hi Mellody YOu are still young to me. To answer your question yes my mother is going to the party and she will also be at the babcock reuion. There is also going to be a babcock family reuion in august in wolverine. That goes back a little farther then you remember Victor can fill you in .That is were the Babcocks came from so you have a lot of cousins there also. Your mothers and my grampa babcock moved from wolverine to the island during the lumbering days early 20's. I don't know exact date but my wife has it wrote down and I'm sure Victor knows.

Hey guys .. just messing around here on this site and came across this post ..

So Did everyone get to chat a bit and who went to Wolverine ?? I would like to hear that part of the history too ..

Well .... I was one of Victor and Bertas flower girls with Leanna Plaunt and I could not make it !! That was sad .. I wanted a picture with Berta and Victor and Leanna ...

Tony and Mark did it up right !! I really loved the wedding picture of them and you can even see a bit of me !!

I could have seen so many of all of you that I have not seen in years ..

And yes Melo I remember all of you !! when you lived on the island ....
I miss that Hotel !! It was for sure a big part of the whole part of my island years growing up ....

So share with me guys ..
I know alot of the people that were there is not a member of this site but ..there are a few out there that are so lets hear from you !!
