  1. I always enjoy looking at old pictures. With this picture, I'm really drawn to the eyes. They look very kind.

  2. I agree. I think he looks like a gentle soul.

  3. Recently started to research my genealogy. Andrew and Mary Peachy are my great, great, great grandparents! My line is through their daughter Eliza. Seeing the pictures is amazing and my resemblance to Mary Peachy is astounding.

    1. Hi Deirdra, Thank you for visiting my blog, come back often. I am a 2nd great granddaughter to Mary Peachy's sister, Alice Demyers Overton Usher.
