Adding the Words for Wordless Wednesday

On Wednesday I posted this photo of my husband's great, great granduncle Asbury Jackson Mayfield and his family while they were supposedly making molasses. Asbury was born in 1846 in Monongalia County, West Virginia and died Feb. 1927 in Smithfield, Wetzel, West Virginia. He was first married to Luama Tennant and they were the parents of 9 children: Nimrod, Andrew, Sanford, Lewis, Rebecca, William, Sylvester, Simon, and Richard.

Judy Mayfield has posted a wonderful memorial to Pvt. Asbury Jackson Mayfield here on Find A Grave. He served in Company P, 6th Regiment, of the West Virginia Infantry during the Civil War. The photo at right below was attached to that memorial. I LOVE IT when I find family photos this way and am very grateful to Judy for posting this.

I'm posting this photo of me and my husband at left below so you can see the striking resemblance in Larry and his great, great granduncle. Do you see it?
