Rebuilding

I've given myself a project for this year. This is a photo of my house probably around 1840-50???, not really sure when it was taken. Sam Evans was the brother of my Great Great Grandmother, Dianna. In the picture is his sister, Aunt Betsey (Elizabeth). I don't know if they built the house or purchased it, it looks well "used" so I think he must have purchased it. Sam immigrated to this country in 1830.

So, my task is to restore this photo. It's going to take quite a while and it will be interesting to see what it will look like.
I'll post updates once in a while to show the progress.
