    OK, it's only two, but there just aren't that many pictures showing a Great-Great-Grandmother and her Great-Great-Grandchild.

    My wife, Celia's, Grandmother Lillian Todd Cox, along with her great-great-granddaughter, Quinn. Grandmother will be 111 years old in February.

    111.....Wow!!! You sure don't see that very much.
    I managed to get a four generation picture with my grandfather, father and son before my grandfather passed. My son was around six months old at the time. I thought it was pretty cool getting four generations, but five is amazing.

    Wow indeed! Last year I got a four generations picture with my mom and my daughter and grandson all 30 years apart, ages 0,30,60 and 90. No hope for five in our family.

    Holy crap, 111! And she looks great!

    I thought my mom did good at 101. We have a 5 generation pic of her at her 100th BD party. It was cool.

    Cool. We recently got a four generation photo. No centenarians in our families... yet.

    Wow... awesome..!!!

    I barely knew my mothers parents, and my dads parents were gone before I came along.

    Seems my family kind of stretches things out. My great grandfather was in the civil war as a 10 year old drummer boy.

    Great genes! My grandmother did pretty well at 94. Dad is 89 now and still going strong. So hopefully I got those genes.

    Very, very good genes. Centenarians are indeed rare.

    We had 5 generations for a while, through one of my cousins. She had kids young, one at 18. Her two kids had kids young as well.

    That won’t happen with me. We only have 3 generations alive through me. Our kids are 19, 21 and 27 (step-daughter). The younger two are still in college and currently no boyfriends. The oldest lives with her boyfriend, they got a place this year. No plans on kids anytime soon for them either; she says he’s already like taking care of a kid. :rolleyes:

    Wow, great photo Spike! When our daughter was born, the greats had already passed, and at age 15 only has one grandfather left. :-(
    Enjoy the family moments!

    My grandmother lived to be 101, she died 2 years ago. We got a great 5 generation picture at her 100th birthday party.
    My wife's MOTHER just turned 100, but all we can do with that side is 4 generations. Slackers.

    one of my great-great grandfathers and all my greats were still alive when I was born, and they died within 2 years of each other. I was 12 when the last one passed.
    I used to love talking to them about the "olden days".

    Here she is ten years ago - when she still lived alone in Tallahassee, and still drove.
