NAOMI MAE BARKER KEMP
Naomi Kemp, our current matriarch is a descendant of Stephen James Matthews, Sr, through his second son, Stephen James, Jr. as indicated by the above chart. At the 2013 Family Reunion at the Senior Center in Loretto, TN, we celebrated her 100th birthday. In honor of the occasion of reaching a 100th birthday (the following with May, as indicated by the notice below) a birthday cake and several gifts. Jane Harlan designed and framed an ancestor for Naomi and added her husbands line and Naomi's picture on it. Naomi lives alone, at this wonderful turn of her century and is able to take care of herself. She has many friends that look in on her from time to time and she goes to church regularly. I have been going to reunion since 1993 and I don't remember a time when Naomi wasn't present. We are looking forward to her speaking to and being with us at our 2014 reunion - at our new meeting place at David Crockett Park in Lawrenceburg, TN.
