Five Generations

Top row left is my Great, Great Grandfather William. He was born in 1881 and was a Georgetown graduate and lawyer in Washington DC. He passed away in 1935. Top row right is William Jr, my Grandfather, shown here Christmas 1968 with his Mother. He was born in 1912 and died in 1989. Middle row left is William III, my Dad, shown here with Benjamin in December 2005. Middle row right is me, William IV in Spain in April 2000. Benjamin is in the last picture, which was taken in November 2006. Five generations. Why not William the fifth? Both Weena and I agreed if we were to have a boy we would name him Benjamin and we did. Eventually I will produce a fifth for Dad but it will be from the liquor store.

Great - we always said, "if we have a fifth, we're going to drink it!" Love it! Mom
