Here, gathered in our beloved South Dakota, are a few members of our Williamson / Mattson Clan. Charles and Luella are to be blamed (be kind, they didn't know what they were doing). We're generally a happy bunch and somewhat intelligent (notwithstanding our tenuous grasp on reality). I'm also proud to say that most of us still have our teeth.

Newly Discovered Photograph of our Great Great Grandmother Catterina.

Our Great Great Grandmother Catterina Camerlo

From the Fortress of Solitude
Pleasant Grove

Hello All,
I'm spending much of my available family history time on the new family tree. I'd like to get that caught up with everything I've posted in the blog. It will take some time, so while I work on that there will be fewer historical posts.

Tonight I'd like to share a newly discovered family picture found in material our cousin Jared Peterson (Karen Vercellino's son) posted to his Ancestry.com site.

Her name was Catterina Camerlo. This is the relationship chart:

Their Children
Great Uncle Ray, Grandma Elda, and Great Uncle Ed.
