Crain, Paden, VanSkiver or Parker? Maybe you know!
This is one of my favorite photos. We have no idea who he is. The filigree around the picture is gold and the picture has been cut out and glued into the oval.
Possibilities are Crain or Paden who were from Portsmouth, Ohio or VanSkiver or Parker who were from Preble and Butler Counties.
Some of the families stayed and some went to Indiana, in the 1870’s.
