The forum description lists photos, but I've haven't seen any. What unusual photos have you unearthed in your genealogical searches?

My grandfather's older stepbrothers immigrated together to northern Michigan in the 1890's and became loggers. The attached photo is of their logging camp in northern Wisconsin.

Really cool photo, Dave! Looks almost like a painting!

I have a distant cousin who is a historian and he put together a book on my mother's side of the family and included photos in there of our 3rd great-grandfather who fought in the Revolutionary war! Then he also included a photo of another great-grandfather (and my great-grandmother) who fought in the War Between the States in the Battle of Atlanta. That was really cool to see those photos.

My grandmother in england sent me a picture of HER grandmother...so my great-great grandmother...which would be like...18-somethings. Anyway, I'll have to scan it and post it on here because it's so awesome to see my great-great g-ma in this tin type with her cool 1800s dress on and everything. haha I don't know why but it's just awesome.

If we could just stand here, without the words, would that be enough? ..Look at the sky now. What color is it? Or the way a hawk flies. Or you wake up and your ribs are bruised thinking so hard on somebody. What do you call that?

Here's one of my wife's gg-grandfather Dyer Crowell, a Connecticut Yankee who served with the 8th Texas Infantry and then became a successful blockade runner, along with a few of his 8th Texas buddies.

For all who are new around here. You may have noticed the picture to the left, as my avatar. That is a picture from around 1890 of my great-grandfather, Patrick Egan of Shrule, Ireland. He was 6'7" and 300 lbs. Not your typical Irishman.

Here's one of my gg-grandfather Bird (Burgess/Ben.) Franklin, who served with the 65th KY Enrolled Militia (Union), one of the units that stopped John Hunt Morgan's raiders at Cynthiana.

This is what is left of the Egan Farm in Brackloon, Shrule, Ireland. It was built originally, sometime in the 1830s by my G-G-Grandfather Thomas Egan. All eleven of the children of my G-Grandparents, Patrick and Honora Egan, were born there.

The farm has not been in the Egan family since 1954. The property was left to the family of Patrick Egan, Jrs. wife. They wanted nothing to do with the property and let it fall to ruble and sold it 3 years ago.

I really enjoyed that picture, Egan. Wouldn't you like to own that? I think it's wonderful that you have a picture to show where your GGGrandfather lived, it's such a shame that they let it fall down. Maybe the new owners will repair it and give it lots of love! biggrin.gif

Here's another view of the house. This is the attached barn side. In those days, they used the animals to help warm the house. Usually, there was only one fireplace in the home. Your home was taxed by the amount of fireplaces you had.

Wow! Awesome photo Mike! I had no idea that they taxed the homes by the number of fireplaces. Really interesting history! Thanks for sharing!
