Sweetwater Reunion: 2005

The Stevensons joined the Fomby and the Walker families in a "back to our roots" reunion in the little town of Sweetwater, Texas. For many of us, it was the first contact we had ever had with so much of our family.

We have a common bond of family and, as we got to know one another, we found that there are also a number of legacies that have been passed down to us that connect us together.

The Sons of Jesse

Henry Forrest and Shirley

Most of us have grown up knowing of our Uncle Forrest, but in other circles he has gone by his first name, Henry. It was a delight getting to know he and his wife, Shirley, and they are a treasure trove of stories and tales of family history and lore.

Tales on the Road

On Sunday morning, we took a drive out to the old Stevenson homestead while Henry Forrest told us of life on the open range. It has been said that you cannot drive to the old ranch without seeing at least two rattlesnakes. We saw our limit along the way.
