Simply lovely, Annie.

Cannot BELIEVE you have a photo of your great great!!! This has got to be really rare!

I am incredibly lucky, Ginny. My second cousin, James, who lives in NYC had a copy he attached to the genealogy records he keeps, When he posted it, I was able to save it and make a copy for myself.

Nice photos. Are they all in the same line?

Annie said...

Hi Kristin,

Nels and Emil come through my dad's maternal line. I have a picture somewhere of Leland's father, Reinhardt, but I haven't been able to find it. One of these days it will surface and then I will have a paternal great grand to add to the line up.

Nice to be able to follow the facial characteristics through the generations.
