CLIMENHAGA Family Reunion 1932

I was reminded of this wonderful family photograph this week after learning of the passing of Reta (Philp) Carrigan, a descendant of Benjamin Climenhaga, who was kind enough to share it with me. It is a family reunion of the descendants of Benjamin Climenhaga that occurred in 1932 at the home of his son Emerson Climenhaga.

    Wow, so surprised to see this photo!! I am Scott Climenhaga, son of Arden, and grandson of Daniel Climenhaga. I live in Ridgeway, Ontario and am 53 years of age. My family is from here in Ridgeway, photo probably from this area as well.

    • Hello Scott. Thank-you for your comment. This really is a great photo particularly for your family–not only can we see your father (Arden) and grandfather (Daniel), but also your great-grandfather (Emerson) and great-great grandfather (Benjamin). I’m sure there were many copies of this photo given out. This particular copy came from Welland, Ontario.
