A 50th Wedding Anniversary in May 2004 -- Post 688 of (Not So) Wordless Wednesday

  I can't help it, I can't do a wordless post! This is one of my favorite photographs:  

This photograph was taken in May 2004 in Little York (near Milford), Hunterdon County, New Jersey at the home of my first cousin, Jack Wood and his wife JoAn.  They are in the middle, Linda and I are on the right, and my first cousin (and Jack's sister), Virginia (Wood) Soule and her longtime friend Bob are on the left.  

We flew east to celebrate Jack and JoAn's 50th wedding anniversary, and then do some sightseeing and genealogy research in New Jersey, New York, Ontario and Pennsylvania.  This is the only time I've been to these states to do research, and it was fascinating and fruitful and fun.

We stayed several nights at Jack and JoAn's beautiful home in the woods and enjoyed meeting their children and grandchildren.  The anniversary party was held across the Delaware River in Easton, Pennsylvania with many family and friends in attendance.  The family came back to the home for sharing time.  The next day they drove us into the New York City area to see the City, the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island from the New Jersey side.  I wish I could remember more of the stories I heard on this visit!

Jack and Virginia, along with their brother Walter, were the children of Walter Hazlehurst and Evelyn (Seaver) Wood.  Evelyn was my father's older sister, and daughter of my grandparents, Frederick W. and Alma Bessie (Richmond) Seaver of Leominster, Massachusetts.
