  1. It looks like a Trilobite. That's the closest thing that I can come up with.
  2. LOL! Much like today: "capitalist 1st & patriot last." Thanks for the history...that's my favorite subject.
  3. The 4th picture looks like Chert. It was used by the Indians to sharpen arrowheads, etc. I'm not sure about the others. I love rocks, too!! I have a few that I'm researching.
  4. The saw was made for a company named, "Marsh."
  5. Blunderbuss2, I'm heading to Tennessee in a few weeks and will be visiting with my aunt. I'll have access to some things, but I believe the Colt Navy pistol is in another relatives possession farther ...
  6. Thanks, Maryh1956! I wish I could read more on the container itself. It's still in good condition, except the wires that attach the top to the bottom are worn.
  7. Ok, thanks, Scottvez! I'm reading our family's history that's been compiled from/by several sources hoping to find clues as to what did happen. I do know that a relative has two reunion lapel ribbons....
  8. Thanks, flashlarue! My aunt said that he had had a problem with his ears and wasn't allowed to go on a mission. I'm not sure if that was the one when they plane eventually crashed or not. He was the r...
  9. I hadn't thought about that valentino97! Thanks! That makes perfect sense...I love them, too!
  10. Thanks, Scott. It's not that I don't believe you or trust your expertise in the matter, I'm just confused as to where this was taken. I agree with you that he certainly doesn't look 38 yrs. old in thi...
  11. Thanks!!! My aunt knows that he was in Italy, but she doesn't remember anymore about him. Apparently, the "Lassie Come Home" plane that he was on wasn't this one.
  12. Well, my aunt took the actual picture out and written on the back is that information about my great-great-grandfather. It was taken in 1863. We don't understand the conflict with the information that...
  13. I love reading his account of Jewish history!! It's added so much to some of my Bible studies! Thanks for sharing!!
  14. Yes...private property close to the White River.
  15. Thanks, guys!!
  16. Scott...will do! Still waiting on my aunt to go through her trunks.
  17. Thanks, Ms.CrystalShip!! I think so, too! Themuse, they hoarding as much as they could. I think "things" represented people and events and were more than just "things." I'm so blessed to have some of ...
  18. Blunderbuss2, you're funny and I'd vote for you!! Scott, thanks! I contacted my aunt and she said that she didn't think that was her great-grandfather and was looking for other pictures. However, I'm ...
  19. I'm going to try and get in touch with my last living relative and see if she knows anything. I believe she has the original tin type. I "recall" some of our family history when I wasn't as interested...
  20. Great comments and some eye-opening thoughts! The family history and military records, blunderbuss2, states that he was 38 yrs. old when he was mustered. I thought he looked much younger in this pictu...
  21. Thanks, truthordare! I'm going to post a picture of my great-grandmother with the necklace on. She did have an attachment to the third link, but no one knows what it was or where it ended up.
  22. They are beautiful!!!
  23. I'd take it to a clock repair shop if you have one close. There's a "harmony" that has to be achieved between the pendulum and the mechanism, I think. Beautiful clock!
  24. Thanks, Greendog!
  25. What a wonderful picture! I have a copy of a picture of my great-great-grandfather in his uniform who fought in the Civil War. Thanks for sharing!
  26. Thanks for the love guys!!
  27. Love the picture inside, too! I'm with you...a patented lock that old is worth the cost!
  28. I would love to know the story behind this trunk! Thanks for sharing!
  29. Thanks, Greendog!!!
  30. Oh, wow!! Thanks, Greendog! That's awesome! Do you have any idea what it was used for?
  31. Okay, that's settled! Appreciate it!
  32. Thanks, Greendog! Someone told me that it was a "Civil War" trunk, but I couldn't verify that.
  33. Thanks so much!! I've taken many more pictures and a close-up of the lock. The patent on it, as much as I can tell, appears to be PAT - NOV with the number 3 and two other numbers on the other side of...
  34. Thanks, Greendog! The handles are made of leather and are in rough shape, but still on the ends. I appreciate the comment!!
  35. If anyone has any information about this trunk, I'd love to know about it.
  36. See more
