  1. I was struck by her beauty, but there was anger in the set of her mouth and such sadness in her eyes. You are so lucky to have photo’s.

  2. HAve a question on your Burns. I have a David Q Burns that was born in Vt around 1806-09. Can’t find his folks. Know who he married ( frist name only. Not sure if er last name was Wells or Brown.) ahd more on them. So was wondering if I have a photo of David. i d now they lived in NY at one time.

  3. Mattie Burns was a beautiful woman. If they would have smiled in the older pictures, perhaps emotions and beauty would have been more apparent.
