Nelson_Family_Civil_War_Charcoal~0.jpg726 viewsThis is a Civil War charcoal pic in the Nelson/Hutton family.

It came from the Nelson side of the family and from my hurriedly research (not too much time was spent in research) it could be Martin Nelson and his wife Lucinda.

No names are on the pic.

Martin and Lucinda Nelson lived in Grayson Co.
