Benjamin James Shenton

A trip over to the hotel to pick up more boxes of old photos and sort through them yielded this picture I don't remember having seen before of my father's mother's father—my great grandfather.

Some of you might enjoy looking at it.  (I put him in his place in our family tree on geni, by the way.)

If you like, I should have a few more to scan for you and posterity. :-)

Benjamin James Shenton was born in Southampton on the 28th of June, 1859 and died in the same place on November 26, 1936 at the good age of 77.

  1. Well, now, he looks distinguished, doesn't he? I don't believe I have ever seen it before, either. Thanks for the scan!
