Five generations in Cherokee

Monday, April 23, 2007

The five generations of Cherokee Ericksons include, left to right: father Kenneth James Erickson, great-great-grandmother Esther Erickson (holding baby Parker James Erickson), grandfather Daniel Erickson, and great-grandfather Kenneth Erickson (standing). Photo submitted.
Parker James Erickson was born to Stephanie Gravenish and Kenneth Erickson at 2:45 a.m. on Sunday, April 15, at Cherokee Regional Medical Center. The birth of the 7 pound, 13 ounce, 20 inch-long boy increased the number of living generations of the Cherokee Erickson family to five.

The family got together on April 16 for a "Five Generation" photo at the hospital, and Parker was scheduled to go home the following day.
