Genealogy, simplified!

BOVEY Reunion at " The Homeplace " on Saturday, October 13, 1906


To simplify research and become more familiar with my ancestors, I developed an identification method for photographs (see Identification pages below). Several of my direct and other related ancestors are in these pictures.

Direct Ancestors:

*great great great grandmother

Mary Ann (Cost) Bovey February 2, 1834 - October 23, 1913

*great great great grandmother

Mary Elizabeth (Doub) Hammond December 7, 1832 - December 1, 1908

*great great grandfather

Luther Albert Hammond November 22, 1854 - February 20, 1907

*great great grandmother

Laura Elizabeth (Bovey) Hammond June 30, 1853 - March 3, 1929

*great grandfather

Roscoe Howard Hammond March 8, 1893 - January 24,1984


There is strong reason to believe that Luther Hammond and Laura Bovey were neighbors before marriage.

Notice the close proximity of A. Hammond properties and D. Bovey property

1906 Bovey Reunion photo #1

This photo was given to me by my neighbor and current Keedysville Historical Society president, Sue Gemeny. After a conversation with Sue about my deep roots in the Keedysville area and my direct Bovey connection, she mentioned having a Bovey Reunion photo and kindly gave me a copy. I labeled this photo "#1" for reference purposes. There are 41 people in this photo.
