I was looking through old family photographs tonight and came across this gem. This is my great-great-grandfather and his brothers. Francis and John are the twins, while the other two are Joseph and Peter. Their parents immigrated from Landstuhl, Germany, to America around 1832. Francis had a daughter named Margaret, who is the subject of many, many stories and memories in our family. Margaret’s son Francis was my father’s father.
The picture is in bad shape, but don’t the brothers look ready to step out of the frame and talk to you?
