Family memories:1927 - Thrasher and Flanagan Families
Posted by: Jim Thrasher on Mar 6 2010 20:34

From Koleta Flanagan:

1927 Thrasher and Flanagan Families

Rear: Bob Thrasher, Joe Lee Thrahser, Mary Thrasher, Clarence Thrasher (in Mary's arms), Joe Flanagan, Mae Flanagan, Loren Flanagan

Front: Mervin Thrasher, Raymond Thrasher, Rosella Thrasher, WJ Flanagan, Jack Flanagan

Theses two families knew each other when they lived in the OK Panhandle and went to church together. Joe and Mary Thrasher and their family had moved to Arkansas at the time the picture was taken. A fire destroyed everything that they had: the wagon with their belongings and the new house they had just built.

Joe and Mae Flanagan and 3 sons were traveling through Arkansas. We think they had been on a trip to visit Grandma (Mae) Flanagan’s family in West Plains, MO. It could have been at this time that the Flanagan’s offered for the Thrasher’s to live in their dug out (where Daddy was born) should they want to return to the OK Panhandle.

The Thrashers did return and lived in the dug out for a year, and the families harvested wheat together.

It was about a year after this picture was taken that Grandpa Joe Flanagan died of kidney disease.

Of course this picture doesn't have all of Mother's (Rosella) brothers and sisters (there were 11 in all). Both Mother (Rosella) and Daddy (Jack) were about 2 ½ to 3 years old here. (the little ones in front J)

This Web site:New Family Tree has been Uploaded
Posted by: Jim Thrasher on Jan 25 2009 00:20

A fresh gedcom of the Joe Lee Thrasher family was created from Jim Thrasher's genealogy database and uploaded to the immersive family tree on this site. It includes all the same people and information that was in the previous family tree, plus all the Thrasher and Huddleston ancestors, families of Joe and Mary's siblings, and info on all the in-laws families that Jim had (with the exception of Brenda Thrasher's family tree, which is on a separate web site).

Jim has an additional 2,000+ people in the extended Thrasher, Capps, Huddleston families (but are not immediate relatives of Joe Lee Thrasher) which will be added to their own sites at some point.
