About This Image
This photo was taken in 1859. My great uncle, Nathan Silas Minniss is on the left. My grandfather, Jaduthan Fuller Minniss is on the right. They were brothers. Nathan was 21 and Dew (that was his nickname) was 10 here. The story on this is that a lady in PA bought a small frame in an antique store. When she removed the photo, it had a note behind it. The note gave the above information. It also said that the photo was for Nathan Salsbury Minniss, son of Jaduthan and namesake of Nathan Silas. Nathan Salsbury Minniss was my father. I'm sure he never saw the photo. The husband of the lady who found the photo contacted me by email and sent the glass plate photo. The kindness of strangers, indeed!
