This is an interesting photo. I found this in a trunk that I bought at an Estate Sale.
This is what I believe it reads "Jerry Blayluck hanging at Gatenfort ?ctrh May 11, 1883." I have no idea where this took place, if anyone has in input on this. I researched hangings in 1800 but did not come up with much for Blayluck. I would like to know who this was and the history.

    the best way to do pictures is to scan them; most printers have scan options that usually work pretty well.
