    At our reunion in May someone gave our Secretary (Mandy Waller) a photograph of the McGOWAN family (Alexander BOOKS and Margaret GRONO descendants) to scan. Unfortunately something went wrong and the scan was corrupted. We are hoping to find the person with this photograph in the hope that we could obtain a new copy of it.
