The Antique Photograph Album

While searching for descendants of Benjamin Kingman Curtis, I helped another descendant organize a small family reunion and dedication ceremony to place a new headstone on Benjamin's grave. The new stone was placed in honor of Benjamin's volunteer service in the Civil War. At the reunion/dedication I met several descendants who were new to me. One had brought some photocopies of pages from the antique photograph album. This all happened in June 2000. I ended up borrowing the album to make copies of all the pictures in the album. Posting the images on this blog is a small way to share them with others and preserve them for future generations. Please add comments about the people in the photos and the history behind the pictures as well.
