The past is the present for future generations who do not know their history

A picture is worth a thousand words…

and it is fun to see if there is any resemblance of the person in the photo to anyone that you are related to. I think I detect a resemblance to some of my kin.

The photo is of Elias Terry. He was certainly a very handsome man. Elias Terry was a brother to Catherine Rebecca Jane Terry who married George Henry Peebles. Elias was also a brother, just  older, to Elizabeth Anna Garth Rachel Matilda “Lizzie” Terry who married Joseph Calvin Tolbert.
