Sometime after the Civil War, my great-great-grandparents, Pleasant and Eunice, and his parents, George and Delilah, posed for formal photographic portraits in North Carolina. I was told we had a set in Ohio but have never been able to land a copy and their whereabouts are now mysterious.
Thanks to Hank Hodgin, whose line had copies of our common ancestral generation, you can view George and Delilah in an earlier posting, but I’d still like to see the other (younger) half of the set.
I do remember, though, hearing that my great-uncle Samuel Hodson used to have all four portraits displayed in his house, and later, after learning that my grandparents were married in a parlor ceremony there, I took a second look at their wedding photos. Here, behind one of the guests, Pleasant and Eunice look on.
