Moses Blood

This is the only known photo of Moses Blood, husband to Sarah Batty Hawkins, and father of our grandfather, Roscoe Blood. He and Sarah married at age 22 and had five children. Together they farmed the land. Moses died at the age of 45 and is buried in Charles City, Iowa. He looks very young in this portrait, perhaps taken at the time of his wedding.

This is an exciting picture to have a copy of. I didn't know it existed.

I have this picture, but it was unidentified. Thanks, Judy.
