Bio Photo Hello,
The image on the left is of my grandfather and his brother. It was likely shot at the 1915 Lincoln Exposition in Chicago. Grandpa (on the right) stands on a prosthetic leg and is also missing his right arm. The loss of these limbs were a result of an encounter with a high power line while working as a roofer in Chicago. The "Human Torch" was able to recover and father three more children. If not for his will to survive I would not be here today, my father was conceived after the accident.

Thank you so much for taking your time to take a photo of that headstone. It really means a lot to me. May I use the photo on Ancestry? Thanks.

RE: Brown Scovill and Zimmerman
Good for you.... we can all use a history lesson now and then! I'm enjoying learning more about the Civil War and particularly the 92nd Illinois Infantry.
