Here are the Upshaws at home in Dalton. The log house was built in 1828 and was still standing last I knew.  Pictured are Zillie, Albert, Samantha, Mr. Upshaw "Jack", Lydia, Felix, Thomas, and Maryann. Sorry, I can't quite make out the dog's name, Sewelen?

This one is  Rront row: Andrew Jackson Upshaw, Thomas Blackman Upshaw, Lydia Rice Upshaw.  Center:   Albert Lee Upshaw.  Standing:  Zillie, Samantha, Felix and Maryann. Zillie later married H.Y. Tucker, Samantha married Joseph Hammett Robinett, and Maryann married John Thomas Baker.  This image was originally taken from a tintype.

Samantha Upshaw Robinett.

I am pretty sure that the young man on the right is Thomas Blackman Upshaw. I think that the other man is probably a brother-in law, John H. Baker, or Joseph H. Robinett. If anyone can confirm the identity of either, please email me. This photo was one of several that I have that are in the green paper frames like those used by G.F. Lemmons, a Pocahontas photographer. I guess that the photos were taken about 1900.
