An Assortment of Macks

Due largely to the generosity of wonderful folks out there who post pictures of their relatives online - wait - they are our relatives too! - I am pleased to show you:

Norman Clifford Luther and Richard Burton Mack (in wagon)
 in 1925, Everett or Melrose, MA. Norman is the son of Jessie Mack, 
Harold's younger sister, and Carl Vinton Luther

and just for giggles, because she isn't directly related,

Lucy Mack Smith
daughter of Solomon and Lydia (Gates) Mack, from Gilsum, NH;
older brother of our Samuel Mack. Lucy married Joseph Smith, 
son of Aseal and Mary Smith of  Topsham, MA. 
Lucy eventually gave birth to Joseph Smith the Mormon Prophet.

It's kind of wild when you think about it... I was born in Connecticut and have ended up living in New Hampshire, not too far from Gilsum. Strange, huh?

  1. Lucy Mack isn't related to the Londonderry Mack's, one of the first Scots Irish families in New Hampshire, but Joseph Smith (the father) resided here (was Londonderry, now is part of Windham, NH) for a bit before removing to Vermont. Strange, but true!


Are we really related? I'd love to know more about that!Please leave contact information when you comment.
