Picture Perfect Saturday #28 ~ Benjamin and Katherine (Latimer) Shirley

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!

This week I am showcasing my paternal 2nd cousin twice removed and his wife. Benjamin Emaziah Shirley was born in 1814 and his wife Katherine Caroline Latimer was born in 1824 in North Carolina. They were married in 1841. This photo was taken about 1880 in Reed Creek, Hart County, Georgia. Benjamin was 66 years old and Katherine was 56. They look like a very mild-mannered couple. I think he looks lie he knows a secret, and she appears to not enjoy her photo being taken. My only wish was that the photo was in better condition.

I am a professional genealogist, writer, photographer, wife, mother, and grandma. I have two books available on Amazon.com: Your Family History: Doing It Right the First Time and Planning Your Genealogy Research Trip. You can also connect with me via Facebook or Twitter.
