The Major Espy Family

The Major Espy House, Main Street, Headland, AL

Daddy's and Mother's first home was where the SE AL Gas Co. is now.  Daddy got the design for the Main Street home while at The World’s Fair.  There was a section on housing and he brought back plans. - Watty Espy
Major Watt Espy, Jr. (from Major's first marriage to Mary Jordan Scott)

Edith (my grandmother) with Mark (Dad) and Marilyn

Mila, Mark and Marilyn

Mark, Marilyn, Major Sr., Mila, Major Jr. (Watty)

all nine of the grandkids

Arguably the best portrait the family has of Major and Edith. I believe this was taken for the First Baptist Church Directory in the mid to late 70's.

Thanks for sharing!Oh the Memories.
I'm back online and getting settled. My official move to BHM is next Thursday though I've been here 10+ days my stuff isn't. Finally got computer issues settled; please be in touch @ my gmail address bc I can't reply from rr.com. These pics are all very special! A terrific group :) Dedee really hated to have her pic taken so the 1st Baptist directory shot is a rare one! The story behind the one of the 3 kids is funny, do you know it? They were posing before Kate Helen & Roy's wedding. -N@
