    Several photos from the Shockman family reunion, Part II

    Let's try this again.

    First photo is the grave marker of my great-great-great-great grandfather (on my dad's side) Henry Rausch (1822-1893).



    Second one is the grave stone of my great-great-great-great grandfather (also my dad's side) Paul Schmitz (1823-1896).



    Third is a poster that hangs in "Grumpy's", a bar in Cold Spring, MN, that my wife, brother, his wife and my cousin stopped at for a couple of cold ones. Nice to know that there are fans everywhere you go!



    Last is a photo of my dad's siblings that are still living (out of 15!!!). From left: my mother Joan (filling in for my dad Ken who passed away in 1992), next, my uncle Calvin (Kelly) Shockman, who served in the ND House of Representatives for about 10 years (and who also is missing his thumb and pinky on one hand from farm accidents - my dad's family were ALL farmers!); next, my aunt Lois (Shockman) Mases; my uncle Thomas Shockman; his wife Dorothy; my aunt Mary (Shockman) Bergman; my aunt Phyllis Shockman (who was a nun most of her adult life); and finally Maxine Shockman, Calvin's wife.



    Never find a nicer group of family members! We have video of all those pictured, plus several who have died since (including my father Ken, my uncle Mickey, aunts Lorraine and Grace), sitting around the old farmhouse in Braham, MN, where I was raised, telling stories about when they were growing up. It was from 1987, at my sister's wedding reception at the farm.

    When we get the photos back of the entire group there and my immediate family, I will post them.

    Hope you enjoy!

    Hey Shock, why were you in Cold Spring? Just wondering. My Mom was from there.

    We were driving around the area on a local "family history" tour. We drove through Cold Spring, and stopped at Grumpy's for a beer.
