One big happy family

William Cowhey (1834-1892) was the proud father of at least fifteen children - born to his first wife (whose name I have yet to confirm) and to his second wife Margaret (Foley) Cowhey (1855-1913). Can you just imagine the family gatherings? What a bunch of cousins.

Here's a photo of one of those gatherings, circa early 1940's. The family is gathered on the porch of the home of John & Frances (Owens) Cowhey at 75 Main Street in Mount Carbon, Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania. Among those pictured are John & Frances, Charles & Agnes Cowhey, their daughter Molly, Kit McGinley and her family, Helen Cowhey Miller's two children Eileen & Joan, Bill Rogers, Blanche Cowhey and possibly Nan Cowhey, Grace Cowhey, Pat Cowhey, Mary Cowhey, Jim Cowhey, Fran Cowhey Chapman and Ann Marie Mokelar.

If you recognize anyone in the photo, please let me know and I'll post their names along with the picture. I'd like to be able to identify everybody and indicate who's who.
