This week we are looking at photos that you submit of your family ancestors with dogs. We start with this one submitted by the OPOD Arch-Nemeses Nate Maas. The picture shows Jacob and Maggie Grow, and family. Jacob was a former Rebel in the 7th Confederate Cavalry. After the war he became a pastor, preaching in Georgia, Florida, and Texas. There is a dog in the picture, but it appears to be "stuffed". Hopefully they had a real dog back home. The picture was taken in the late 1800's, probably in the Gainesville, Texas area.
