Editor's Note:  You might well wonder why Ezra Ames should have information on the Woodward Family reunion as did I.  Well it turns out he was married to Diantha's cousin Loretta.  Ezra and Loretta were younger than Frank and Nora by about a decade.  Many things can be said about the Woodward Family but one thing that stands out in the records more than any other fact is how unbelievably fecund they were.  What fun those parties must have been.  Sorry the caption and names a little hard to read I will check with Diana to see if we can make it more legible.
