Susan, thanks for your kind words.

How terrific to have pictures of some of your ancestors.  To think that your bearded brother could pass for your dad's grandfather.  How cool.

My brother could pass for Baldy Ewell, at least from the eyebrows up.

I have no pictures of any of Mom's family.  Her mother was an orphan, raised by a kindly foster father.  No family history, documents, or photos came down to us.  No pictures from Dad's side, either.

My husband got lots of old family photos, which I put in albums for his kids.  Small-town Illinois people, but no Civil War veterans, as far as I can tell.
