Family Album: McMahon Siblings

On December 3, 1955, my great aunt Rose McMahon married Bernet Oien. Here’s a snapshot of Rose and her siblings from the reception. All surviving siblings are present except for the youngest, Frank. I wonder where he’s hiding?

Let’s take a look at them about thirty-five years earlier, on the family’s farm in Benson, Minnesota.

I know, that is a terrible photo of the front row, but here is a better one of the youngest McMahons, Agnes and Frank.
