Great Grandpa about the time of the family's immigration to the U.S.

Christian is a handsome man. His beard is very neat, as are his sideburns.

He looks like a dashing television or movie star from today and not someone from 1880. The only thing that gives him away are his clothes, which fit him well, are are very nice.

I love this picture, and thank you for sharing with your WikiTree family.

Cheryl, He us a handsome and well kept man. Yes his looks are dashing as a modern day actor. I can go a little farther. He looks very confident. He probably brought that family trait here to the US. He apparently was no slouch. The family we have been shown so far and that  we read about thanks to Robert were never afraid to try something that suited them. It just does not pop up when you land in the US. They had a roll up your sleeves and get to work  to be successful ideology buried in their hearts and minds before the family came here..
Thank you for selecting my answer Pip. I appreciate that.
