I know I'm joining this conversation VERY late, but the Nathaniel Dillehay listed in Peggy's query was my maternal grandfather. He was born in 1905, and died in Graham, Alamance in 1974. He had a sister named Lena, but I don't believe she was nine years his senior. My mother said they were close in age. Can anyone tell me the names of Nathaniel's parents, and the names of his siblings? Any help will be greatly appreciated. Please e-mail me at my office: firstname.lastname@example.org

. My sister has in her home two very old and very interesting pictures. One is of my grandfather, his sister Lena, their mother, their mother's sister (we think), and their grandmother. It's very old, and in it's original frame. My grandfather was VERY young in the picture, he is wearing a dress. In fact, he and his sister are dressed in similar garments, with hair of the same length. I can't tell if the picture is a drawing, an etching, or a painting; but it is very old, and definitely not a photograph. Stuck into the back of the frame we found a smaller, sepia-toned photograph (maybe a tintype or daugerrotype) of a man my mother identified as her father's father.
