Oban family celebrates Fabulous five
FIVE generations of an Oban family recently marked the birth of the latest baby by gathering at the home of great-great-grandmother, June Alexander, writes David McPhee. The family celebrated the birth of great-great-grandson, Aiden Dunley, who was born on June 12, weighing 7lb 12 oz, completing a living family tree going back five generations.
June, 86, who has seven grandchildren and five great- grandchildren, said: ‘It’s wonderful having so many because you can hand them back. Aiden is very good and a lovely little boy. I’m over the moon.’
Aiden’s grandmother, Elinore Smith, said: ‘It’s amazing to have five living generations.’
