Genealogical Expedition

I went to see my third cousin Joe last week after my wife and I went to Vermont to visit the Shelburne Museum.

While I was at his place, Joe and I scanned all the old pictures he had, and he had some very interesting pictures.

You saw the cabinet cards yesterday didn’t you?

Joe had more to show me…

Tintype photographs!

One person was easily identified: John B. Alexander II who fathered 18 children.

But this next one should have been easy. 

He is Joe’s grandfather who I am sure Joe had not recognized.

I did when I came back home to look more closely at the tintype pictures!

Next time we pay homage to Joe’s grandfather.
