These are photographs scanned from old daguerreotypes and tintypes. The people here are from my Father’s side of the family. Two were taken from his mother’s (my paternal grandmother) side of the family in Scotland.
Young George Moore
Possibly my favorite picture of the bunch, George Richard Moore. The man standing at the rear smoking the cigar in the previous family picture. He's the father of Rebecca Winfield Moore Chambers, who was my grandfather's mother
My Father's, Father's Maternal Great Grandfather.
Which makes this man my Great-Great-Great Grandfather
My Father's, Father's Maternal Great Grandmother.
Which makes this rather unhappy looking woman my Great-Great-Great Grandmother
You may recognize the two people seated at center from the previous portraits.
Rebecca Winfield Moore Chambers. is at far right and her Grandparents, center. Her father, George, is standing.
The woman at left is unknown but close examination of the full size scanned images lead me to believe she is the younger sister of the woman second from the right. Or perhaps not...
The MacKillop Kids
Charles MacKillop (My Great Grandfather) at left at about 3 years old.
"Grandpa Mac" was my Father's Maternal Grandfather, whom I remember knocking about my Grandparents house in Wyncote PA with a cane and a smelly pipe. He passed away when I was 5-ish.
At right, his sister Margaret Hoagland (Aunt Peg)
Taken in or near Glasgow Scotland about 1876.
Campbell MacKillop and his first wife Margaret.
Taken about 1872, in or near Glasgow Scotland
The parents of the two children in the previous picture.
