Today was a great day.
That one short comment and an initial email resulted in an exchange of some amazing photographs through a fast and furious flurry of emails.
I provided all of the photos I have of the Coons, Pettibones and Halls as well as the scanned images of David Coon’s letters home during the Civil War. In exchange, this kind gentleman sent me the most exciting collection of images of my husband’s grandmother and her family.
My heart started racing as I scrolled all of the great images and I immediately thought about how exciting it will be to pass these images on to Mark’s father and his uncle Bill.
One thing I can’t help but notice looking at these photographs is the amazing family resemblance between Louise and her gransons Marsh and Bill, and also to her granddaughter and Bill’s daughter, Shelley.
This type of windfall happens very rarely.
I can only hope that this blog will lead to more amazing finds like this!
I love genealogy, and I appreciate my fellow community of genealogy researchers.
