Pictured here is my great-great-grandfather and his wife and children. 

He is listed in census records as being a photographer in northeast Iowa.  I don't have many old family photos so I enjoy looking at this one and seeing the resemblances to family members living now.

Great-great-grandfather later contracted consumption.  He and his wife left their children in the care of relatives and headed with horse and wagon to Colorado for treatment.  First they went to Missouri to visit his mother and he ended up dying there.  My great-aunt went down there once to find his grave where he is buried next to his mother at Huntsville. 

Have a wonderful weekend.
Stay safe and well.
