My grandmother, Florence Donnelly Dennison was born to Joshua Caleb Sweeney and Hattie Abbott Sweeney.  It is not known how Joshua died leaving Hattie with four youngsters.  Her mother raised Laura and Charles.  Florence and George were adopted by Owen and Bertha Donnelly.

This is a picture of Joshua Caleb Sweeney and his mother, whose name is not known.  They are tin photos in a tiny double frame.  I am so pleased at how well they scanned.  Just thought I’d share them with you.  They are in the Dennison Family Portrait album on Picasa.

This is a photo I took of the frame with the photos removed.  Gram had written the names and inserted them inside.  Sorry, it is blurry.
