The New Winnard Homestead

This house was built a little west of the old place.  It was close enough to walk over and check it out.  I’m not sure when they finally tore the rest of it down.  I moved away in 1972 and didn’t come back to Oklahoma until 1977 so I missed a lot.  I think Grandma is standing on the porch with her scarecrow.  She always had a big garden and lots of fruit trees.  She had to put up a fence to keep the cows from eating too much fruit.  They still got enough. Their necks could really stretch over that fence.  I posted a picture awhile back that was taken in the front yard of this house and it was in color!  Imagine that…I’ll dig out pictures of holidays when it was cold outside and we were all inside…talk about crowded.

Welcome Winnards!

Photo of Grandma & Grandpa WinnardI decided to setup this site so I can do live updates from any computer instead of being tied to my desk and my website software.

I’ll be posting more old pictures soon.  If you would like to provide pictures or share information about you’re family, I can do it here.

One thing to remember, if it’s posted here, it’s public so we don’t want to put any personal information here like full birth dates & full names.  Girls, stop using your maiden names for passwords.  Choose another term for your personal identification because your maiden name is fairly easy to find using the internet.

Please share with your family members and let’s catch up.  You may also post comments here.

The picture in the upper right corner was taken in Aunt Betty’s garden a couple of years ago when Dad and I visited.
