Lawson Sherman and Winnie Self Family Reunion

The family of Lawson Sherman Self and Winnie Self held a reunion in Cleveland, Tennessee on Monday, July 4, 2005. I had planned to attend this reunion, but due to my having to work on Independence Day, I missed the event. Joy Shook was kind enough to provide me a picture to share with everyone.

Pictured are:

(Standing)- Trent Rogers, Eddie Self, Thomas Rogers, David Rogers, Jane Rogers Banther, Sandy Rogers. (Seated)- Dianne Self King, Dianne Self Brown, Joy Self Shook, Dorothy Rogers Dunn, Cornelia Self Callahan, Kay Self Pendergrass, and Tammy Self.

All the Rogers kids are the kids of Lee Self and Roy Rogers. Eddie and Kay are the kids of Beecher Self and Sue Johnson Self. Dianne Brown and Joy Shook are the kids of James and Nora Johnson Self. Dianne King, Cornelia Callahan, and Tammy Self are the kids of Uless and Virginia Self. They are all the grandkids of Lawson Sherman and Winnie Self. Thanks to Joy Shook for providing the picture and identification. Maybe I'll be able to attend the next reunion guys.
