Gravestone photo by Jon Simmons
My cousin Jon scanned this old family photo for me. Evidently the gent on the right is our great, great uncle, who died when he was only 25.
(He looks older than that here, but that was the case back then - people aged more quickly...I wonder if he fought in The Civil War? Boys as young as 14 and 15 fought, didn't they? That would age a soul...)
Love their suits, hats, ties, watch chains, and especially those boots! I'll be drawing his portrait for my series soon...
