This is one of my paternal great grandfather. I have shared photos of all my great grandmothers so I thought it only fair to share my great-grandfathers. I meant to do it in June for Father’s Day but life planned otherwise. So I’m sharing this now.
His father fought for the Union in the Civil War. His father-in-law who lived with Thomas for sometime fought for the Confederacay. I found that interesting and wonder how the in-laws got along. Thomas was a farmer and was killed in a farming accident when my grandfather was a young boy. You can see Thomas’s wife Molly Rebecca McCravey Bright in this post. This photo of him was made about 1895.
