Attached is a photograph of my great-grandfather, Risdon Darracot Gribble, in his Confederate uniform. He was born 26 April 1836 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and died in Houston, Texas, in 1908. His parents were Joseph Besley Gribble and Margaret James who immigrated to the U.S. from Barnstaple, England, in 1831.

This is my great-grandmother, Margaretha Schwab, taken at age nineteen in 1886 shortly after her arrival in New York from Dirmstein, Bavaria. She married a Mr. Stoffel after her arrival but was widowed and married my great-grandfather, Leopold Friederick Schumann, in 1888.
