To quote my Mother, Jean Helena Fleming, here is a picture of “The Whole Damn Family!” There is an additional unidentified friend in the very centre.
The gentleman just left of center at the very top, labelled Oscar Ernest Fleming (called “O.E.” by his friends), is my Grandfather whom I never got to meet and know properly because I was only three when he died. His wife, Caroline Maud Drake, known to the family as Mamie, gave him eleven children, all of whom are in this picture. This genealogy depicts where this large family came from, and where permission is available, what became of it. I can’t begin to count the thousands of first cousins spawned by this hearty breed, but I am the youngest first cousin, born to the youngest child in this picture.
