  1. I love these photos —- keep them coming. I love the old photos. I have many of them and love each one. I even have a few “tin types”. Thanks for your wonderful service.

  2. What a wonderful surprise to see a surname (Durbin) which is in my family. James Durbin was born in 1796 in Westminster, Carroll County, Maryland. He and his family moved to Monroe County, Ohio and then to Adams County, Illinois (where he died in 1892.) There is probably some connection to Goldie’s family, due to geographical locations, but it is unknown to me.

  3. Marlene and Patricia, I, too love the old pictures. I have a tintype of my granparents wedding, Jan. 1, 1889. Will try to post it here. Shirley
