More memories...

More memories ... from my mom's photo collection...  Today's photos are all taken from a small photo album I discovered amongst her things.  None of these photos are dated.  They appear to be photos of her older sister (my aunt) Betty Over (nee MacLaughlin) and her family.  I don't know where they were taken, or when – or why my mom even had the album!  All of them are 2" x 2" snapshots, of the kind that the classic Brownie cameras made.  On each photo, left-to-right, top-to-bottom:
  1. This photo was unlabeled.  The subject looks a lot like my youngest brother Mark, but I'm guessing it's actually one of Aunt Betty's (many) children.
  2. My aunt Betty, my mom's older sister.  Her appearance here matches most of my memories of her, so I'll guess it was late '50s or early '60s.
  3. Labeled “Mike”, so I'm guessing that this is Aunt Betty's son (my cousin) Michael Over.
  4. Labeled “David and Gregory”, and I recognize the younger one as my cousin (Aunt Betty's son) Gregory.  I remember him as quite a bit younger than I was.  I don't remember David or his relative age.
  5. This one is labeled “crashup” and it intrigues me because I don't actually recognize any of these kids!  The second one from the left looks like it might be my brother Scott.
  6. Labeled “Gary” and I have no memories of him.

Conspicuously missing from these photos are Aunt Betty's daughters.
