Postcard sent in by Creig Crippen
I received this letter today and I thought I would share it with you. I also received a tintype photo of Patience M BENSON GOULD born 21 Feb 1815 and died 12 Oct 1880 along with other pictures of the family. Three are not identified. I wondered, if we could put them on your site where someone might be able to recognize them. Let me know what you think.
