Ole Larson's Folks

Died in Preble County, Ohio, on this date in 1857: fourth great-grandfather Peter Drayer. Top photo (pardon the poor copy) was collected by Cynthia Drayer and posted to findagrave.com. These are the most distant ancestors I have a photo of, by two generations. That is, I have photos of six of my eight great-grandparents, about eight of sixteen great-great, none of third great-grandparents, but now, a pair of fourth great-grandparents!

The Elizabeth Myers pictured here is no known relation to our ancestor Philip Myers. Philip’s daughter Elizabeth was born ten years later, and married one Emmeaus Locke.
