Agnews in Northern Ireland (Hornbaker)

My Grandparents' family

Robert Hornbaker produced this report after his trip to Ireland in September 2002. Being a cousin of the Loofbourows via his great aunt Jane (Agnew) Barker, [Mollie (Barker) Loofbourrow's mother], his report was presented at the Loofbourrow Family Reunion in July 2004 at the Crestline Lodge at Lake Gregory in the San Bernardino mountains.

The original report included black and white - photo copied - pictures. Robert provided original pictures for this version of his report so that color photos could be included in this new layout. Also, the exhibits in the original report are recreated here, including some of the artwork, photos of Lochnaw Castle, obituaries of grand parents, and maps.   Click on image to see report.


Holiday Memories

A few years ago we collected holiday stories from several of our cousins and relatives and gathered them into a 35 page collection. These include stories from the turn of the century (1900) and some as recent as a few years ago. There are stories from our relatives in Iowa, Oklahoma, many from southern California area and up at Hollister. You older ones will enjoy the memories and you younger ones will get a glimpse of family Christmas' past. I hope you enjoy!

Down load the Holiday Memories collection. If you have an iPad you can download it and save it as an iBook. Most of you will probably just print it.
