I just want to thank you for your work on this Web site.  I am the great, great, great granddaughter of Colburne Preston (born March 29, 1792 and died May 30, 1881) and Sally Webber (born March 17, 1799 and died on August 21, 1863)--they were married on November 30, 1820.  Their son, Daniel Preston, born on June 8, 1826 and died in December, 1895, is my great, great grandfather.

If you're interested, I also know about Colburn's parents and brothers and sisters.  My second cousin, Lina Preston, did the geneaological work in the 1960's, to become a Daughter of the American Revolution, through Colburn's father, Levi Preston.

I have seen some old photos of my relatives but this photo is the oldest I believe I have ever seen of my relatives.
