OMG. This is so sad... Who are they mourning?

No idea... I think this is my cousin John's house built in 1850... But can't swear to it.

Do you see any early deaths in your family around that time? I hope it is just a man taking the picture... maybe a grandparent passed. Someone took this so it would be remembered...

See... That's a tough one. I don't know the year, though I'd bet on the 20's, but I come from a long line of Scots-Irish farmers.
Ma was one of 6 (5 girls 1 boy), Pop was next to the youngest of 10... His dad was one of thirteen and his mom was one of 6 I think... and her dad was the young man in the photo with the "gibson girl"
Best I can even narrow down is that its on my father's mother's side of the family... If it's not my father's cousin's wife's family.

In my heart I feel this is a very sad photograph. The faces say it all.

Remember sadness is always temporary. This, too, shall pass.
