Regarding odd message at right: if you've had email contact with me, why don't you message me that way so I'm sure to receive your comments?

Yes, I do have many pictures of known members of Powell/Martin/Meservey family that were gotten from an ESTATE AUCTION that was held in Buckfield, Maine in 2005. I got NONE of these from any thrift shop...have never bought ANY picture in a thrift shop! I worked very diligently to figure out who was who as daguerreotypes, ambrotypes, and tintypes are rarely ID'ed; and now anyone can see where multiple people lifted the picture I had here for Betsey Downs Meservey and reposted it on ancestry.com without any permission or independent verification!
