Brodhead family reunion in 1964, celebrating 300th anniversary

I finally found this photo from the 1964 Brodhead family reunion in Kingston, NY. I know some of you were actually in attendance, so perhaps this will be a stroll down memory lane for you!

Click on the image, and then on “2818 × 1326” to see it at full size. Double-clicking on the image will achieve the same thing. Perhaps, the Brodheads among this blog’s readers will be able to help with identifications, particularly of those who have since passed away. Feel free to leave comments in the comment box below, or email me at chipsoff at gmail dot com. Also, any Brodhead family members wanting a high-res, watermark-free copy, please email me and I will send one your way. Many thanks, and enjoy your weekend!

PS: I do have the list of attendees, so I can cross-check names for you.

  1. Oh yes! I am in the photo, as are my parents, sister Pat, several aunts, uncles, and cousins. Let’s start with the easy ones: the two nuns are my cousin Anne Cosgrove (Sister Mary Carolyn), later Anne Cosgrove Cunningham (she left the order, married, and had two children; sadly, she died at age 54) and my aunt Anne Brodhead (Sister Anne Marie, who lived to be 96), who were both teachers and Sisters of Charity. Just behind them, between the Annes, is my mother, Doris Pettigrew Brodhead (1918-2015). Just to the left of Anne Cosgrove is my father, Edward Joseph Brodhead (1918-2007). I think he has a camera around his neck. Directly behind my father is his younger brother, Daniel Dingman Brodhead. To the left of my father is his sister Gertrude Brodhead Scott, wearing a suit and holding a purse and white gloves. Sitting below her is my Aunt Mary, wearing a single strand of pearls and earrings. That is five of the nine brothers and sisters who were the children of Calvin Easton Brodhead and Gertrude McNulty Brodhead. I think a few of Calvin’s brothers or sisters are in the photo, including Ruth Brodhead Fuller. (Calvin and Gertrude were no longer alive.) I met RuthFuller at the reunion. My uncle Phil, who was a priest, and was Father Martin Brodhead, TOR, was also there, but I don’t see him in the photo. Somewhere I have a list of the people who attended the reunion. Now for the next generation: at the bottom of the photo right above the word “chips” is my sister Patricia Jean Brodhead. Just to the right are two of my cousins, Heather Kernan and Trudy Kernan. Between Trudy and Heather in one row above is my cousin Polly Kernan Doyle. Just above the man in the front row wearing a plaid sport jacket is me! (Judith Anne Brodhead).


  2. Wow, that is one large family reunion. –Curt


  3. I believe I recognize the Charles Dingman Brodhead family, after doing some cross-comparisons with the photos on the memorial page ( Wife Sue seated on ground on left in floral dress with two strands of pearls, Charles is seated to her left, hands clasped at his right knee; Sons Charles & John are further to the right (4th & 5th spots over from Charles Sr.). Daughter Julie may be seated in front of Charles Jr.


  4. What is your email? I would love a photo and have a few things to send it you.


  5. Hello! We are interested in a copy of this picture. This is David Naar, Gloria Brodhead’s son. For those who didn’t know, Gloria passed away June 16, 2016. Please contact me @ thenaars @ comcast . net if we can still get a copy. Thanks in advance
