Smith (Smythe) Farmer Aumack
Smith Farmer Aumack was my husband’s great grandfather. I have also seen the first name spelled “Smythe”. I don’t know which one is the preferred spelling although my mother in law thought it was with the “y”.
The original photo resides at my mother in law’s house (details private) and was scanned as part of a 3 day long scan fest I did with my Flip-Pal picture scanner. This scan turned out well despite the thickness of the frame and metal. Smith is a young boy in the photo, age unknown.
