Full genealogical information available upon request. Also pictured is his wife Lucinda and two of his sons. One particularly haunting image features his wife and one of their deceased infant children. There are four images in total. The traces of blue in the photo are a result of reflections in the glass and is not in the original image. All images are clean and crisp with no image loss or defects.

Condition Note: The last image was created using a flatbed scanner. The image appears darker in the scan than it does in real life. Also, there appears to be a scratch near the hammer on his left arm. This is not on the image, it is either a reflective anomaly from the scanning process or some sort of stray material captured in the scan. I have carefully examined the image with a magnifying glass and there is not scratch in that arean.
