Findings

I have been finding some very fun stuff. I've been scanning as I go so that I can share photos with other family members. So, I thought I'd share this one with you.

The gentleman on the left (in the funny hat) is my Great-Grandfather Clements. I don't know who the soldier is or where or when this picture was taken. A wild guess is that the picture was taken in the 1890's in Iowa, Nebraska, or Wyoming. If anyone can give a better date, I'd appreciate it.

Wow, how wonderful to be able to find great old family photos!!! And super of you, to be saving them and scanning and etc. So wonderful.

Many families lose such treasures. Thanks to you, your family won't do so.

Wow! That's pretty cool. Sets my mind to wondering... what were they doing? where were they going?
How did the photo happen? All kinds of imaginings.I like it.
