Sunday's Blast from the Past
This is not the master of the Ponderosa, although anyone who knows him sees an uncanny resemblance to the man in the photo. Some have even thought this is a photo made in one of those old time photo/dress up type places. It is a real photo of George Washington Gibson my husband's great, great grandfather. He lived from 1825 until 1892. We have the photo because my brother and sister-in-law stopped one day at the home of relative in Albany, KY. They were invited into the home and this photo was hanging on the wall. When they explained the resemblance to their brother, the relative allowed them to take the photo and copy it. It now has a special place in our home!
