Treasure Chest Thursday - January 21, 2010

Following in the Geneabloggers tradition of showing you something I consider a treasure on Thursdays, I have been going through my expanisve photo collection, and sharing those with you.

Today I'd like to introduce you to four of my great-aunts and great-uncles. Two couples. One from each couple are brother and sister.

Lorene Banet Lee, Otis Lee Sr., Cora Allen Banet, and Clarence J. “Greenie” Banet

These are two of my maternal great aunts and uncles. Lorene and Greenie were brother and sister [my maternal grandmother’s sisblings]. Lorene was the youngest child of the family.

Lorene and Greenie were two of the eight children born to Francis Isidore “Frank” Banet and Adaline Eve.

Greenie was born 11 Sep 1904 and died 17 Aug 1986. He married Cora Allen [1912-1993] on 26 May 1928. They had two children: Faye and Jerry.

Lorene was born 15 Jan 1909 and she died 27 Mar 2005. She married Otis Lee Sr. [1908-1986] on 05 May 1934. They had five children: Emma Jean, Otis Lee Jr. [1937-2007], Ruth, Norman and Suzanne.
