The home of Mr. and Mrs. J. H. Noble in Corsicana was the scene of a gathering of Mrs. Noble’s seven sisters and their husbands for dinner on Sunday, April 21, 1957.
The eight sisters are daughters of the late Mr. and Mrs. T. J. Swanson, pioneer residents of Malakoff. They were all born and reared in Malakoff and attended the Malakoff public schools.
This occasion had a special significance since it was the first time the sisters had been together since 1937 and in honor of the reunion, the above picture and colored movies were made during the afternoon.
The above group picture is that of the eight daughters of the late Mr. and Mrs. Tom J. Swanson, who were all together recently for the first time since 1937.
