    I have a very old picture, a studio shot of a woman taken in Liberty, Virginia. I found this among my mother’s things and have taken it to a camera shop to be restored. I learned on the web that Bedford was called Liberty until about 1892. I am thinking that this woman could be Sarah Jane Leftwich Anderson (b. Dec 2, 1820, d. April 7, 1911), my great great grandmother. The picture is in pretty good shape but perhaps I can guess the age of the woman once it is restored. I am wondering if anyone else in this line has pictures from this time frame. Thanks.

    I have a photograph of Nettie Leftwich, born 1879, taken when she was about 20. She was a grand daughter of William “White Head” Leftwich. She was my grandmother.

    I’m sorry to be so long in logging back in to this site but thank you Frances for responding to my post. My email is winfree.segal@gmail.com. Would you want to scan and show me the picture you have? I can do the same with mine.
    Thanks again:)

    Did Thomas serve in the War of 1812?

    I have a photograph of Jane (Gincey) Leftwich Brown, taken later in her life. It is in a sampler she worked in 1817, along with a photo of Joshua RC Brown at a younger age.
