This old portrait was found in an old farm house in Fayetteville, NC in 2009. Despite research with long time locals, I was unable to find anyone who knew who he was. The background is a peach. The original was black & white and color had been added to it. There was nothing to identify the man.
This is John Fanning Youngblood born 1804, John Bergette Youngblood born 1873, and Emzie Engle Youngblood born 1897. Emzie was my grandfather. I think they all look very much alike. I'm not sure I have the relationships correct but here is what I have. Jeremiah YB, born 1765, fathered (among others) John Fanning (1804) , Theodick (1814)and William (1790). Theodick was the father of James Polk (1844) and grandfather of John Bergette (1873). William was the father of James (1865), Grandfather of Marion (1859) and Great-grandfather of Emzie (1897). If anyone has Youngblood pictures from this family, I would love to see them.
