These tintypes are of, my great, great, great grandmother, Louvina (Mitchell) Call (Left Photo=Center, Right Photo=Right) and her brothers, William Mitchell (Left Photo=Left, Right Photo=Left) and James Mitchell (Left Photo=Right, Right Photo=Center). I have tried to enhance these so that they can be seen better. The photo on the right has clearly had a rough life! It is rippled and scratched and very damaged. One thing that I really love is, in the right photo, there is an arm, on the right, that is holding Louvina up, so that she doesn't fall over. If you would like to add anything please comment...

    hotkitties: A lot of my my current (living) relatives resemble most of my old photos, it's so cool!!!

    Esther110: I also noticed that! This was a strict family too, I've heard a lot of stories.
    Louvina, the little girl in these two, would not let her kids go barefoot. I've heard that from the moment that they stepped out of bed, they were to have shoes on.
