Anyway, I now have several generations pinpointed and have learn of their tragedies and triumphs. It is interesting to know I have bright teachers with a school to their names, a radio personality (before the TV existed) a priest, two politicians ....and a bandit who was smuggling spirits during the prohibition!! LoL Doesn't get any better than that!
I listed this little ACEO girl on ebay. I like her a lot and the inspiration came in part of Frida, one of my favorite painters, but also from a wonderful OLD picture of one of my ancestors.
See the picture and tell me what you think. She is the mother of my great grand father on my dad's side of the family. Isn't she a pretty girl?
In 1902 she became the mother of the man who 37 years later became the first Mayor in their little town.
