Treasure Chest Thursday: Another Family Pic- But Who?
This dag style picture was found among the papers of one of my dear cousins. We suspect the gent to be his great grandfather and the brother of my great grandfather.
But is this him? Perhaps someone who knows the insignia on the hat and the chest could be of assistance in this quest of firmly identifying the photo?
What a great genealogy treasure this is if it is indeed Uncle Addison as he served during the Civil War in the Pennsylvania 5th Heavy Artillery. I also have a diary he kept during his time serving the Union.
Sure would be cool to put a face on the diary's author.
Update: I have not uncovered a pic of my uncle in later life although I do have a pic of his son and of his daughter. The pic of my great grandfather in the same time period does not indicate the heaviness of the eyebrows.
