The Family of John Sanders McAllister (J34-3-1-6) Smyth County, VA about 1960

John Sanders McAllister and his wife Lydia Elmyra Smythers had ten children, eight of whom lived to maturity. By 1950, two others had died, and these six survived to pose for this informal portrait at a family reunion.

Today, many of this family lie in a well-kept family cemetery in Smyth County, their graves shaded by walnut trees, on a hilltop in the peaceful mountain valley where they lived their lives. To date, John Sanders and Lydia McAllister have more than 500 descendants.
