More photos of Autumn in New England by my brother, David B. Crook.
The last grouping shows cranberry bogs, which have a special meaning for all the Boynton grandchildren: in the late 1800s, our grandfather Solon R. Boynton, worked in the cranberry bogs near his home in Carver, Massachusetts, often missing school to do so. Read more about him and how he finally graduated from Boston University medical school in 1903. We are all grateful for the fact that “Grandpa Doc” harvested cranberries to help his family and that he finally reached his goal of becoming a physician. I believe he delivered all his own children and all of his grandchildren. I was the first to get married, and in time, he delivered Ronald K. Simpson, Jr. However, he decided to wrap up delivering babies after that.
