While going through a stack of old papers I've had for years, I've found some letters and some photo's concerning the Packards of Quincy Ma.
In particular I have 2 photos from roughly the 1880's showing a man in a Fire Department uniform, big bushy mustache, I'm guessing 45 to 50 years of age. The photo was taken at A. Frank Bussell's studio on Hancock Street in Quincy. On the back of the photo, in pencil, is "Mr. Packard".
The other photo is a pretty 30-35 year old woman short curley hair, also taken at the same studio. On the back, also in pencil is "Mrs. Packard".
I believe in other files I also have photo's of their house in Quincy, and other family photos, but I've yet to come across those.
Please let me know if anybody can fill in any blanks on these people.
