Hi john, yes, we have photos of the James Wesley Auten family while in Indiana - that would be about in the 1850's. I don't know if the photos were before or after the Civil War. ( I've checked the registers of Civil War participants and find scads of Auten/Atens, but not the names I am looking for (ie James Wesley Auten). We are told that he and his son and his son's father-in-law were all veterans... I wonder. Maybe it was because they were not in the war that they traveled so far West!!!)

In any case, I'd love to share the pictures we have. I have some on my current computer file and will be getting more next time I visit my mother (age 90 and still living on the farm our family had when I was born) probably next Spring. If you want to give me your email address I'd be happy to pop some over to you. You can reach me at nanvose@hotmail.com cheers, nancy
