My mom (Lois Barron, nee EASTMAN) inherited a family photo album from her grandmother, Rebecca Catherine Eastman (nee Cline) of Cornwall, Ontario, CANADA. There are very old photos in this fragile album including some tin-type and others, mostly taken a photo studio in Goveneur, New York. Most of these people in the photos are 'mystery ancestors' (we have no idea who they are, other than a few with various things written on the backs such as "M/Nellie & Grace Meyers" on one, "to aunt Beckey with love from Thompey" (I'm assuming 'Beckey' was Rebecca) on another, "Grandma Dearest from Harold" on a third, and "Emerson and May" on a fourth. I have scanned all these photos (as well as known photos of my ancestors) and posted them on webshots:http://community.webshots.com/album/220883556qyPqQY/0
If you have any clue as to who any of the people in these pictures are, please let me know!!!
