I have a couple of layouts to share with you today. This first one is of my gg-grandfather. I was lucky to receive this photo from an older cousin, when I started trying to trace my roots. I love the older photos such as this. It always makes me wonder what the person's life was like.
As for my gg-grandfather, I do know some of his history.
He went by his middle name, Henry.
In 1862 He enlisted in the 4th KY. Calvary of the Confederate Army, and left his wife, Mary, and one child (my g-grandfather) at home.
He had a horse shot from under him in the war. After the war, Henry returned home and farmed with his father, David.
Henry and Mary had a total of three sons, the oldest being my great-grandfather. Mary died at the birth of the third son.
Henry remarried at least once more, possibly more.
I did a layout a few days ago of his son (my g-grandfather), you can see it a couple of posts down.
I used the same template as in the layout yesterday.
You can get so many different looks from the same template.
Fonts used are Malone & GilliesGotDLig
Kit used is Victorian Memories by June Schutrups aka Cen'Stuff
Template is tempch4 by Cen's Stuff
In the second layout, the photo is of my youngest child, who was born to be wild. He loved being outdoors, playing, climbing trees, hills, wading creeks. Catching frogs, bugs, snakes (non-poisonous, but still scary to me). I can laugh about these things today, but let me tell you he was really a handful while growing up. I never knew what to expect! LOL
