  2. What a fantastic photograph. Oh, I do hope this turns into a Full Circle. That's the kind of photograph someone in the family would love to have!

  3. I heard from Sally in Virginia this morning by email. I am mailing off the photo to Sally today. Will and Maud are her grandparents and she is the family genealogist :)

  4. Thank you so much for tracking down this photo of my grandparents! This picture was taken on their wedding day. Will was a farmer in Winterset, Iowa and my grandparents lived there until the early 1960s. They moved in with our family in Maryland and were married 60 wonderful years. Thank you so much for tracking down my brother. My siblings are all getting together after Christmas and I can't wait to show them this picture. I guess I guess I now need to see if I can figure out who Effie Sherwood is. Thanks again!
