Gus and Pearl Marlin with Grand Daughter, Lisa Marlin

Lisa Marlin is my second cousin on the Ferrier side of the family, and she recently sent this photo to me to post on the blog.  Augustus Hounting Marlin was a cousin of my grandfather, Walter Elbert Marlin.  His wife, Pearl Ferrier Marlin, was my grandmother’s sister, my grandmother being Dulcie Ferrier Marlin.  Gus and Pearl had many children and one of them, Herbert Marlin, married Dorothy Jameson and their daughter, Lisa, is shown above with her grandparents, Gus and Pearl Marlin, at their home in Missouri.

Great Aunt Pearl (Ferrier) Marlin and First Child, Bill

This is my grandmother’s sister, Pearl Ferrier Marlin, with her first child, Bill.  Look at her tiny waist! Not sure when it was taken but it has gone from Missouri to California, back to Missouri and then again back to California. The photo was sent to my grandmother (California) by a sibling of Bill’s, not sure when.  Eventually my grandmother sent it on to Bill and his wife, Brooks Marlin.  The photo then was eventually sent to Bill’s sister, Lorraine Marlin Gentry (California).  Pearl looks a great deal like my grandmother, Dulcie Ferrier Marlin (she married a cousin of Pearl’s husband, Gus).

Chicken Salad

I like this recipe because of the yogurt base and the grapes.  I do another variation of this, very similar, but with dried cranberries and chopped pecans.

Uncle “Geroud” Ferrier

Another old photo sent to me by my Marlin second cousin.  We are also related on the Ferrier side of the family.  It has “Uncle Geroud Ferrier” written on the reverse.  Don’t know who it might have been unless it was Jordan Ferrier, the brother of my great grandfather, Charles Oliver Ferrier.  There is definitely a resemblance.  Note that the baby doesn’t look too happy, and you can see the legs of a man or boy behind the horse’s front legs…hopefully keeping hold of the baby for the photo!  I think Jordan Ferrier lived in Missouri all his life, so I am assuming, if it’s him, that the photo was taken there.

Great Uncle Homer Ferrier Family

This is a photo of my grandmother’s brother, Homer Ferrier, and his family.  They lived in Missouri and Homer died at a young age.  His wife’s first name was Louise, and they had three children, Hazel (the oldest girl), Donny and Carolyn.  I think it’s Donny at the bottom right and Carolyn being held by her dad.  By the time I met Hazel, Donny and Carolyn in the mid-60’s, they were all living in and around Baltimore and Washington, DC.  We visited with Carolyn and her family for a couple of days during a road trip east, and we also met up with Aunt Hazel (by then remarried but widowed a second time) Adkins and Hazel and Donny.  I was recently contacted by a second cousin on the Marlin side of the family who had come across this blog.  Her dad and my dad were first cousins on the Ferrier side of the family, and also more distant cousins a few times removed on the Marlin side of the family.  My grandmother’s sister, Pearl Ferrier, married Gus Marlin and they had many children.  My grandmother, Dulcie Ferrier, married Walter Elbert Marlin, a cousin of Gus Marlin.  My second cousin sent this photo and another one I will post tomorrow of some of the Ferrier relations.   The Marlins were original settlers in what became Webster County, Missouri in about 1830 near what would become the town of Marshfield.  The Ferriers came shortly after to the area and settled nearby in what became Dallas County, though  eventually the kids mostly went to school at the Pack School in what became Laclede County (the three counties come together).

(HOT) HONEY MUSTARD DIP

I don’t like REALLY hot anything, but this dip can be made to taste with as much, or as little, hot pepper sauce as you like.  I make it with just a small dash to give it a bite, but it doesn’t leave a lingering hotness in your mouth.  See below.

HOT HONEY MUSTARD DIP

In a small bowl, whisk 1/3 cup Dijon mustard, 1/3 cup honey,  1/3 cup vegetable oil and hot pepper sauce such as Tabasco, to taste.

Great served with everything from pretzels to veggies.
