Last sibling of the Harry McClaughry family.

Tonights blog is a little personal my Aunt Suzann New passed away Thursday evening. She was the last sibling of the Harry McClaughry family.
The Harry McClaughry family moved to Missouri in 1947 from Wichita Kansas. The family settled on a small farm between Rich Hill and Hume Missouri. Eventhough they went to school at Hume, I heard many Rich Hill stories from the 1950's and 1960's.

Thanks. The McClaughry's on Arthur Dow McClaughry's (Harry's brother) side is almost coming to an end. Ronald Arthur is 83 and lives in Bremerton, WA. His wife passed last summer. He has 4 kids. Two are boys (one Mark and the youngest Kevin), but neither one has any children so the McClaughry name surname comes to an end. Two daughters, Ivy and Karen both are married. Me, I've remarried with one boy Wayne who lives in Las Vegas, one daughter Robin who lives in Wichita. She had two daugthers, Tara and Christen and one grandson Alex. Time is lonesome. Thanks for the picture. Brought back a lot of memories. Linda Louise McClaughry-Hensley-Weisser-Baumer. Also in Las Vegas, NV
