Based upon this picture, it looks like this family reunion was a big one, with descendants from several of Benjamin Kingman Curtis' children.
Left to right is: unknown, Betty Johansen, Norma May [Farley] Curtis, Oscar Curtis, Lavantia Curtis, Clyde Curtis, Grace Curtis (Sherm's wife), Belle, Sherm?, Fred Curtis, 4 unknowns, Ed ?, George Curtis.
We need to examine this photo more closely because the names and genders don't match up to the identifications so far. Plus we need to add how each are related and where they descend from in the BKC family.
This photo was taken at the 1955 Curtis family reunion picnic in southern California. Left to right is Belle, Orpha, Betty Johansen, unknown, and Lavantia Curtis.
- Belle who?
- Orpha is likely Orpha Curtis, daughter of William Rushmer Curtis and Ella May Canfield.
- Betty Johansen was the daughter of Johan Roy Tolve Johansen.
- Lavantia Curtis was the daughter of William Rushmer Curtis and Ella May Canfield.
