Talented Tuesday

I've decided that instead of featuring just the ancestors in my blog that I would try to incorporate some of the current generations in my blog also. After all, one day their descendants might one day wonder about their ancestors. So, my goal is to feature some of my talented younger cousins as part of Talented Tuesday.

This is just the beginning and right now I don't have much material, so I'm depending on family members who  would like to be featured to provide me with material for this weekly meme.

The first of my younger cousins that I would like to feature is a descendant of my Grand Uncle, Willie Hosch. Graham Hosch, the younger (his granddad is also Graham and is my mom's first cousin) is my second cousin once removed. I've never actually met Graham. In fact, while I have met his grandfather Graham, I don't ever remember meeting Graham the younger's mom, my second cousin, even though we grew up probably less than 100 miles from each other.

Well thanks to Facebook, I've had the opportunity to connect with a lot of my Grand Uncle's descendants, which is how I learned about my talented cousin Graham. Last month, I had the opportunity to see some of Graham's artwork which was on display as part of the "With These Hands" Black History exhibit at the Rowan Museum in Salisbury, NC.

The pictures included in today's post were taken by the owner of this blog on 13 March 2011.


  1. Nice post! Highlighting the lives of both living and deceased relatives is essential to keeping our legacies alive for generations to come!

  2. Interesting collection. is there a theme to it?

  3. What a wonderful idea! I look forward to reading more about your talented family.

  4. You are absolutely correct. Today's generation is the the art work. Your cousin is definitely talented and "gifted".

    Thanks for sharing.

  5. Hopefully this won't be the only post for Talented Tuesday. Hope my family helps me out on this meme.

    @Kristin No theme that I know of. Just some of his artwork. The theme for the entire display for all the artist was With These Hands.
