My Aunt Jean Ross celebrated her 96 birthday Saturday, July 17, 2021.  The party was held at the Knox Ross Barn in Pelahatchie.

Jean is the last of the Lace and Bertha Horn’s children.  Actually, Aunt Jean grew up in the house I now live in.  My home is a very special place to her!

Friends from Pelahatchie as well as other towns and States came to wish Jean well.

She is the mother of 4:  Barbara, Rebecca, Deborah, and Knox III.

Jean and two of her granddaughters: Jean Ross and Rebecca Ross

I think Jean’s family has more “family” names than mine—if that is possible!


The girl picture is
