New Pictures: Need help.

Portions of this original post have been removed and reposted as they were identified as belonging with other pictures. (click here to view that post)

This post has also been updated 5-28-13.

In trying to identify some of the pictures posted earlier I went back to the collection Rex sent me after Azilee passed away. At least I thought I was going ‘back’ to it. Turns out I had never looked at it. I’ such an idiot I must have kept putting it off until at some point I thought I had done it. Age is a bummer.
Like JL’s collection there were a lot of pictures I had never seen before and I will keep posting them and the ones from JL’s collection and hopefully we can identify most of them.




Gary Littrell and Rex (also see Penny’s comments using the ‘comments’ link below.) confirm that it is Gary, Von, ???? and Malcolm.  No one seems to know who the baby (girl??) is.

1st Annual John & Kizzie Comer) Littrell Family Reunion: 2011 Videos (3)

We had a lot of fun and joked, sang, clowned around and told stories. A foul word may have been said here or there, but never in malice, anger or a degrading fashion. I have tried to exclude them whenever possible but sometimes they may have been relevant to the story or event. If this concerns you you may wish to review all the videos before letting children see them. Some of the stories may at first appear a little embarrassing but looking at them from a distant timeline we should view them as enlightening and reflecting the varied character of our family. Nothing to be ashamed of. Some at the reunion may have acted a little silly, slurred a word, stumbled on a joke, exaggerated a story or doubled a fact… but that’s what happens at reunions… they’re supposed to be more fun than a funeral.

If anyone has a problem with appearing in the video please advise me and I will see what I can do, but I think that everyone will be pleased with what has been included.

Postcards From Santa???

Want your little one’s to receive a letter or card from Santa? Just write them a letter from Santa, put it in a stamped envelope addressed to your little one and mail them in a larger envelope to:xmasKAL (6)

The larger envelope will be opened, the sealed envelopes inside will be postmarked with a special ‘North Pole’ postmark and mailed back to your little one.

You can send postcards too.

The service is free (except for your stamps…remember to put the correct postage on the large envelope and all the envelopes inside) but be sure to mail your envelopes so that they will arrive in Alaska by Dec., 10. Be sure to use stamps and not pre-stamped envelopes or metered postage.

John & Kizzie Family Pictures:

Portions of this original post have been removed and reposted as they were identified as belonging with other pictures. (click here to view that post)

This post has also been updated 6-28-13.

Have received over a hundred pictures from Mary Catherine & JL since the reunion last month (Oct. 2011). Still going through the process of organizing them and need help on some identification.

Reducing Confusion: Even for the ‘1st Cousins’, who is who, can some times stop a conversation to clear up ‘which who’ are we talking about. So keep in mind there has been more than 3 Les’s (Uncle Les, his uncle Lester Comer and his Aunt Leslie), and too many Johns, Jessie, etc. Among these pictures: Jesse Davis m. Letha Mae Littrell sister of Jessie Littrell; The ‘Littrell Sisters’ are the daughters of Grandpa John’s brother James Littrell; and Viola m.Jessie Littrell brother of Viola Littrell-Johnston usually referred to as ‘Sis’.

Untitled-Scanned-04 1. Jesse, Pam, Joyce and Bertha? or is that Onene?  Where and when?  note: this picture and its comment were moved here from another post/article that became outdated and was deleted.   GlennDL

Mary Cathrine Littrell - Cook said... I guess my other post didn't get saved. So here it is again. The picture with Grandma(Kizzie) and the kids. I am almost positive the little girl on the left is Sheila the girl on the right is me( Mary Catherine) the taller boy with what looks like a rifle or shotgun is Billy Davis and the boy in front of (Kizzie) is possibly Jerry Davis. I am going to say it was taken at John & Kizzie's at East Prairie maybe around 1955 or 56.   November 6, 2011  Pic 18 (2)6). Fishing on the river: Maybe Noble on the right, the person on the left ???, Les behind him. No idea on the person in the dark shirt.

 5.) Gene again and Lawrence Johnston. Don’t know who the baby(?Troy?) or the child in the background is. When> I’m thinking before the 1955 pictures. Where? Tennessee or Missouri?

If you can help with any information on these pictures send it to me by email, OR… you can leave it here on the website, which is better because then everyone can see it and either confirm or dispute it. Disputing it isn’t bad because we want to be sure, or to know if we are unsure. Its also better because we don’t have to worry about me getting around to transferring your information from your email to here. See the note below Letha Mae’s family picture
