Wow! It’s been awhile since I’ve posted a blog. This summer has been busy.. I quit doing the Project 52 photo challenge. It was just too much of a challenge getting a new photo each week. I take a lot of pictures. It is the word for the week that challenges me and trying to find a photo subject.
I shot a wedding, Senior photo’s and family this summer. We had a fun family reunion. We went to the Oregon Coast and I’ve made a few cards. Over the next few days I’ll share a few photo’s from all of the activities.
Alexander Kinghorn was born in Greenrigg (Greenridge), Lanarkshire, Scotland, 27 January 1839, sixth son and – ninth child of George Kinghorn, a coal miner, and his second wife, Elizabeth Watson . Greenridge near Whitburn, West Lothian (Lithgow) County, Scotland . His father had come from Newton, Midlothian (Edinburgh) County where George Kinghorn's ancestors had lived for generations . His mother was from Carnwath, Lanarkshire .
Alexander, his parents, and others of his family came to America about 1852, and settled in Belleville, Illinois . in
1854 the Campbell family came . In August 1859 . he married Jane Campbell whom he had known previously in Scotland . He had been a coal miner in the old country and so found employment in the mines at Belleville to obtain funds to bring his family to Utah .
In July we had a KINGHORN family reunion. Several family members live in Boise and surrounding area. Quite a few live in Eastern Idaho. We had family here from Idaho, Washington, Nevada and as far away as Texas. I’m looking forward to next years gathering.
I love my Family!
