Ruth's Genealogy

“I don't know who my grandfather was; I am much more concerned to know what his grandson will be.” -Abraham Lincoln


The lady on the right is believed to be Sarah Sharpe (Vance) Turner, my second great-grandmother. This tin-plate image is from about 1860, I think, and is my oldest image. The brooch she is wearing is still in the family.
