Over the past few days I’ve done a lot of document scanning. Papers that I had been stacking up and setting aside to commit to digital form for years.
The Roberts Reunion Book is a rough scan of all of the images and papers that my Mom started keeping in the 1970’s when she took over reunion until 1992 when the last of Carrie & John’s children passed away.
Hiram Hills Roberts Civil War Papers is a scan of all of the service records and pension papers for Hiram Hills Roberts, my 3rd great grandfather – father of John Milton Roberts and grandfather of Hazel Roberts Reynolds. He died from illness on his way back to Maine as a soldier in the Union Army.
Lester Fremont Eldredge’s Papers are scans of some of the certificates and papers my grandfather’s stepdaughter sent to my Mom after Grandpa Les passed away. Some good history in those pages…and yes, he did serve in both the Army AND the Air Force.
