My grandfather was born near Truax ,Saskatchewan, on March 26, 1911. His parents, Robert Rennie & Beatrice Sutherland, both children of Scottish immigrants, were homesteaders and my grandfather was the third of 8 children, whom they raised in a 16′ x 20′ house:
The first 6 – my grandfather is on the right. I don’t think there are any photos of all 8 as children.
My grandfather had 4 children, 2 boys and 2 girls, who produced 9 grand-children, who have cranked out, to date, 13 great-grandchildren. Here are my great-grandfather (who died at 96), grandfather, father and me, in early 1967:
