Treasure Chest Thursday: Photo of Jonothan Benjamin and Sarah Lydia Gabbard Stout


Originally Published January 13, 2011.



This is one of the very few photos that were in my Grandma Thompson’s boxes of photos and clippings that had anything written on it to identify the people or places in the photos.

It is of my 2nd Great-Grandfather Jonothan Benjamin and 2nd Great-Grandmother Sarah Lydia Gabbard Stout.

Not a great photograph in terms of photography quality but a priceless and wonderful memento due to its subjects!
