And just think how much better he would have looked if his beard had started on his chin, lol. I didn't realize how little I knew about him which was that he was one of the first settlers of Fond du Lac and one of my Elementary schools was named after his family until I decided to add him on here. I'm finding out he and the rest of the Pier's were way more than just the first settlers of Fond du Lac and I can't help wonder why I didn't know any of this before.
Sounds like you are finding out some interesting things about your family history.
Amanda, Yes it is amazing how much we never knew before.  Why oh why? Edward has kind looking eyes.
