As I was doing my research I sat and wondered what their lives were like. I could imagine them gathered around the tree at Christmas time singing carols and drinking warm egg nog. I was lucky enough to come across a web site where a family member had posted some of these lovely treasures and gave permission for anyone to use them, after all isn't that was genealogy is all about?

I hope you enjoy your treasure hunting.

God Bless

  1. Hi, very interesting, these are my relatives. Thank you. Lucetta was my great great grandmother, and Alice was my great grandmother. She died much later than the 1907 you're showing here. I have info in my tree, user name is Laura Harryman.
