Newman and Gertrude Harvey portrait

Updated: Jan 30, 2022

Newman and Gertrude (Shirley) Harvey were my 2nd great-grandparents. Their daughter, Mary, was my beloved maternal great-grandmother. I remember the hallway in my great-grandma's home being lined with large portraits of ancestors, which I considered a little spooky as a child, but in retrospect, I wish I had just taken photos of them! No one seems to know where those portraits are now. Perhaps they were distributed to various family members, like the one I inherited from my mother, shown here. In this damaged, yet cherished portrait, we have one of the few surviving images of Gertrude and Newman.
