Marion R. Emmons donated a large framed picture of Sylvanus Decatur Weeks to the Family at the 2007 Reunion. She is desirous that the picture remains in the family and that a record is kept of who has possession of it. Right now, it is in the possession of Dorothy Vander Meulen. Photos have been taken of the portrait and placed in the Family Scrapbook for those who would like to have a visual connection with an ancestor. Sylvanus D. Weeks married Minerva Maria Snow. He and Minerva are the parents of Mary Emma Weeks, born 27 June 1857. Mary Emma Weeks married Austin Eugene Pearl 25 July 1875. Mary died 15 Nov. 1923 and Austin died 3 Feb. 1927.
