Treat #1 for the New Year: Calvin Harrison Croy

Pictures bring family to life. So do letters and written memories. Recently I went back through some treasures given to me by my cousin’s wife. I also spent time rifling through some family boxes. Lesson learned! If you are interested in family genealogy, leave no box unopened nor anything written unread. I am posting a potpourri of family treasures, one for each of the first ten days of 2014.

Young Calvin Croy about 1863This tintype of Calvin Harrison Croy was probably taken when 18-23 years old between 1865 and 1870.  He served in with the Union Army during the later half of 1865. This is the oldest known picture of any family member.
