John Newton Nathiel
Judge/Justice of Peace
b. 28 Mar
1856 somewhere in New York
standing on the porch, see the gentleman on the
right. I can only guess that the other two people
are 2 of his 7 sons who are helping him build
their new home. I can't really date this photo,
I'm not an expert, but it would be in
Big Prairie Township, New Madrid County, Missouri.
I was guessing that the date would be around the
1910's-20's seeing that the sons are adults.
photo is in rough condition but I am thrilled to
have it! I've thought about having it restored,
but can't let go of it.
believe, considering it's age, the imperfections
add to it's charm. The hole in the top middle (I
like to think), is where they kept it hung up on
thier livingroom wall.
hope you have enjoyed my photograph and sharing
