I am currently working on my Family Genealogy Group page for Facebook. In doing so, I realized I have a tremendous amount of photos. I decided to feature one a week. No, not everyone is “perfect” however, they are to me!
I like the look of this photo that was taken around 1900. It features Thomas S. Hayes (1821-1912) and his wife Elizabeth Jane Ogan (1824-1912) my 3rd Great Uncle and Aunt. They seem very serene and comfortable with having their picture taken. Elizabeth has what looks like a smirk on her face like she knows a secret. I believe Thomas is about 79 years old and Elizabeth is about 76 years old when it was taken.
