Descendants of Adolph and Greta Swanson met last weekend in Sioux Falls, SD. We were probably the smallest gathering of cousins ever to meet in the name of a Swanson Reunion but there was still time for good food, stories and sharing and a photo or two.
Only two first cousins remain. Margaret Swanson Scholten and Harold Swanson reign at the reunion.
Robert Swanson and I grew up in Grandview Church together as cousins. Sunday School, Confirmation, Young Peoples, Christmas Caroling, Hayrides, Easter Breakfasts, Campouts, etc. It wouldn't be a trip home if I didn't attend Grandview and talk at coffee time with Robert.
