Treasure Chest Thursday - Asher Slemmons & Martha Franklin

Extra! Extra! See your extra bonus!

Today you get an extra bonus. Again my aunt has sooooo many pictures that I thought I would double up on the postings.

Here is a picture that is GREAT! From the definition found on the Daguerrotype FAQ page of the Dagurreian Society website I believe it to be an ambrotype photograph. The pictures are of Asher Slemmons and Martha Susan Franklin.

Here is the outside of the case:
And what it looks like opened up:

Here is a close-up of the left side:
This is Asher Slemmons, my great-great grandfather and he looks pretty young here. He was born 22 Mar 1821 in Barren County, Kentucky.

A close-up of the right side:
This is Martha Susan Franklin, my great-great grandmother, and like Asher she looks very young here. Martha was born 26 Aug 1824 in Sumner County, Tennessee, the daughter of Richard T Franklin and Mary Thompson.

Hope you enjoyed, glad you stopped by and please come back again ;)
