Having a fairly large family and experiencing, for the most part, growing up in the same city fosters that closeness I have always felt with my cousins. One particular cousin whom I have never met but who was always the topic of conversations and stories was Troy. I’m not sure why I never met Troy, except perhaps because I moved from Denver in 1970 when he was very young.
Troy was born the year after I graduated from high school so there is a good 20 years between our ages. Perhaps hearing about his growing years and the outstanding experiences he has had is what peaked my curiosity about this young man (remember he is young because there is 20 years difference in our ages.) Several years ago we connected on Facebook and I love the pictures of his family and his travels, and he still peaks my curiosity. Well, ok, I’m the nosy cousin!
Troy recently sent me pictures taken long ago of family members and I am pleased to share them with all my cousins. If you have pictures or memories you would like to share, send them to me and I will add them to this blog.

And the odd picture tucked in with the Hancocks is Wilber Foreman, son of George Edwin Foreman the youngest brother of Robert “Syd” Sydney Foreman. This would be Frances Hancock’s cousin.
