Adirondackers - Living in the Past

These are portraits I did from old family photos of my relatives from the Adirondack Mountains in upstate New York. They were hard-working miners and farmers, most of whom were decendants of  American Revolutionary War Pensioners.  

I am proud to come from these honest, hard-working, and good-hearted people.  Scroll below for larger view and to order.
