Vrana Family Reunion 1946

This was a Joseph and Antonia Vrana family reunion at the old Vrana family farm in the fall of 1946. It included most of their family along with the Tom Vrana family; my dad’s cousin and our old dog, Major. We didn’t realize it at the time but it was the last such reunion at the farm. Grandpa and Grandma (Joseph & Antonia) had bought the farm  and moved to it from a farm near Abie in 1903. It was there that John, my Dad (Tony), Rose, Emma, Anna, Joe and Tillie were raised. Grandpa died in 1950 and the farm was sold after Grandma died in 1960. It was where I was “raised” from the age of 6 till 21. The place is the site of many memories and we still visit it (at least by driving by) every year.
