I love this ancestral photograph which seems to go
so well with this paper. The people in the picture are my great-great-great grandfather, Thomas Hardy Spencer, his daughter, Mariette Spencer Aton, his grandson, William Aton, and his great granddaughter, Elsie Aton. When Thomas died on December 21, 1898, he was 75 years old. I'm guessing that this photograph was probably taken within a year or two of his death. His obituary cited him as being a kind husband, indulgent father, and good neighbor. Sorry about the blue slant, it's the way the sun was shining across the paper. Thanks so much for looking!
