Readers’ Corner: Sept. 3, 2008

A family reunion with 80 guests

The Browning family has lived in Nevada County for eight generations, and the earliest arrivals settled in French Corral in the 1850s. So it was natural for a family reunion, gathering five generations of Brownings, would take place there.

Pat and Nita Browning recently played host to 80 relatives.

The attendees came from western Nevada County, Southern California and Washington, Idaho and Arizona, said Diana Pello of Nevada City, who helped the Brownings arrange the event.
