Carole's paternal grandparents were Brad and Blanche (Emert) King. They had nine children, and when Blanche died in 1996, there were 31 grandchildren, 41 great grandchildren and 1 great, great grandchild. Needless to say there are plenty of photos from a family this size! In order to try and keep everyone straight, we'll refer to them by their relationship to Brad and Blanche (a.k.a. Papaw and Granny). Hope you enjoy these family photos. Any King family members out there who would like to add more, just e-mail us at!
