Are You My Cousin?: Wordless Wednesday Elbert Lowery

Are You My Cousin?

Discovering My Ancestors -- One Cousin at a Time

My Photo
Name:
Location: Raleigh, North Carolina

I tell the stories of my ancestors’ lives. Whether they lived 20 years ago or 200 years ago, they each have a story to tell. Some ancestors tell their stories willingly. Others must have their stories carefully teased from the records. Sometimes the stories are sad. Sometimes the stories are happy. Sometimes the stories are just funny. Regardless, my ancestors’ stories shaped their lives and the lives of those that followed. Come and share in the tales!

Wordless Wednesday Elbert Lowery

Elbert Lowery (1920-1998) is not actually an ancestor of mine. I found his picture among others I recently received. In a quick look on ancestry.com, I learned he was from Halifax County, VA. I share his photo in hopes one of his descendants might come across it. I'd love to reunite the photo with the family.

This is a great idea. I have a photo of my grandmother's college friend. Her name is on the back. I think I'll share it on my blog and see if I can make a match as well.

Great thinking on your part, I am hoping that his descendants would find this picture you have posted. Keep up the good work
