Rob, you are very fortunate to have those pictures and that history, especially from both sides of the family.

Thanks guys. I'm not sure where that barn is, however our barn, constructed prior to 1902 when my great grandfather bought our farm, still stands. Both sets of grandparents lived near Milford, NE, and about a mile apart. I live on the same farm.

My grandparents first cars were Model Ts. My dad's first vehicle was a 25 T roadster pickup that he and his brothers drove to school. My first car was a 1926 T touring that dad and I fixed up and I drove to school on a school permit at 14. I guess that's three generations of a first car T family.
