It almost looks "ghostly" because the picture has faded.
This is the original of the picture. I had it matted and framed years ago
My grandmother was born in Davie County, North Carolina on January 11, 1886. She and her siblings were orphaned when she was very young. The children were all sent to live with different relatives. She said she remembered some of her brothers went out west and she never heard from them again. She died in Lowndes County, Alabama in 1969.

My grandfather was born in Mecklenburg County, North Carolina on February 2, 1882. He met my grandmother in Cooleemee, North Carolina 1904.
They lived in High Point, Rhonda, and Cooleemee, North Carolina and moved to Alabama in 1946 where their sons were in the military and they wanted to be close to them. They lived in Lowndes County, Alabama until 1972 when my uncle and grandfather moved back to N.C. My grandfather died in Cooleemee, North Carolina in 1977.
