This is my great-grandfather, James P. Preston, of whom my 'mentor' in family history and genealogy study, Aunt LVene, said: "We don't know much about grandpa Preston."
Of course, she 'meant' - "we don't want to talk about grandpa Preston" - because grandma Preston had 'poisoned' their minds about him. This made me immediately 'much more interested' in him, of course, as I have written many times, before - including finally getting this photo from a cousin, after extensive research, travel, writing, etc. It really got me going. He is 'my face of genealogy," I believe.
P.S. She did know a lot about him; just wasn't willing to share it! ;-)
Families are Forever! ;-)
