Jerry Dagenhart Sorry to inform you this but by no means is this a portrait of someone born 1769.It is a Charcoal enhanced photograph from a photo taken Circa 1890 of what appears to be someone roughly 30 years old.This is not a drawing from life. Mail order companies mass produced these enlargements from small originals by printing an enlaregd photo on enlarged vellum and then artists enhanced the images with chalk,pastel and or Charcoal. This is someoen born 1860-1870 not 1769. Sorry.Did you mean to type 1869?

Jerry Dagenhart Vickie Thanks to your correspondence and a Little research,I believe this family is the Henry and Lula D Reed Family of Etowah Alabama. The Chidlren in the 1900 census match gender and age exactly and Margaret B Dunn lived in the same Precinct in 1900 in Etowah County. The Chidlren are Walter A Mandie L Mattie E James L Eddie B Ethel M and Baby Henry R on his Fathers knee I also believe that Lula May be a Dunn or a sister to Margaret B
