Genealogy Acts of Kindness

A genealogy act of kindness is sending a photo or document to a researcher without asking for anything in return.

This week I received some photos from a distant cousin whose 2nd great grandmother (Hannah Boyd) is the sister of my 2nd great grandmother Sophia (Boyd) Bailey. 

In the photo above -- the gents seated are David Solomon Bailey (right) my 2nd great grandfather and his brother-in-law Frances Holland Shonkwiler (left); the lady on the far right is Sophia.

The second photo (above) is Sophia's niece Lucy (Shonkwiler) Stocker (left), her husband Marion Stocker behind mules, and Marion's sister Bertha (Right).

Thank you Linda.
