Ruth's Genealogy

“And in the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years.”


The lady on the right is believed to be Sarah Sharpe (Vance) Turner, my second great-grandmother. This tin-plate image is from about 1860, I think, and is my oldest image. The brooch she is wearing is still in the family.
