Gentlemen, Still a newbie to your group but I have much to share that may be of interest. Still seeking a way to resize photos so I can post them here so none will be included with this post.
I have mentioned elsewhere my Great Aunt that was a Pearl Harbor survivor and her first husband who was a 20's era US Marine Aviator. When my mother passed away last month I helped my siblings go through her possessions. I saved any old papers or photos . After getting home I had time to go through them. I found a folder containing my Great Uncle Horace Palmers papers. One item I found was just a thrilling thing to read. I found his application to the Ohio Society of the Sons of the American Revolution. It is a fabulous thing to discover that through your relatives your family had some small part in the founding of this great country.

On the back he outlines Sgt. John Browns military record.
