Joseph Godfrey Swartz (1847-1887) of Virginia Photo
« on: Friday 03 August 18 13:46 BST (UK) »
Photo of Joseph/Josephus Godfrey Swartz (1847-1887) of Rockbridge County, Virginia. Served in Civil War for Virginia Confederates. This photo came from a newspaper article in Virginia. He was a student at Roanoke College at the time. He was married to Margaret Jean Ochiltree (1847-1928). They met when he came home from the Civil War at age 17/18.
  Looking for a touchup on the photo. Thanks in advance.
