One of my ROOT cousins has graciously loaned me his old ROOT family picture album, and I have scanned the pictures.One of the pictures is of Hannah ALDERMAN.Is she related to the ROOT or DAMUTH family?
The ROOT family is from the Town of Lysander, Onondaga Co., NY, and the pictures appear to be from the 1870s and 1880s. I would be glad to email pictures to interested researchers.
Pictures in the order in which they appear in the album:
