Letter to Oscar Clement from Arthur with picture of Josephus Manson Smith

“Oscar, I’m sending you a picture of your Grandfather – (cousin Joe Smith)  He lived with my Grandmother at the time the picture was made.  My mother carded the rolls & spun the thread and wove the cloth & made the suit of clothes he wore to have the picture made.  We loved cousin Joe & I thought you might like the picture.  It was made before the Civil War.  Lots of love.  Cousin Auther(?)”

This is the picture of Josephus Manson Smith that was attached.

About the webmaster

My name is Autumn and I am really happy to have you here.

My Mom, Jean, taught me young to appreciate and love the people in our family history.  We spent a lot of vacations going to cemeteries and court houses to document and find our ancestors.  Because of our belief that families are forever, genealogy is very important.  When I was in seventh grade, genealogy became more of something “boring” we did on vacation and became a serious hobby for me.

Thank you for your support and please come back often to check up on updates!  I am really excited to have this space for our family and I hope to hear from you.
