It’s been a busy summer

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.
