Throwback Thursdays - August 27, 2015

I found Throwback Thursday on Facebook, and I love the idea.  So I thought I'll keep my blog in this fascinating loop.

I didn't see any rules about the time frame of the throwback.  So here is my entry for this week.  The tiny boy in the center of the photo is my paternal great-grandfather (my dad's mother's father).  His sisters (the girls in the back) are obviously much older than he is. Lottie and Tillie were born before the Civil War;  John was born after.  His father (also John) was an officer in the Union army and away from home (Michigan) for several years during the war.  This photo was taken ca. 1868.

Too far back?
