Israel Worsham Photograph - 1866

Today's photograph is one of the oldest I have found in the family. As a member of the House of Representatives in the 11th Texas Legislature from 06 Aug 1866 to 13 Nov 1866, my 3rd great-grandfather Israel Worsham (Baldwin line) appeared in a group photograph of House members. Israel is listed as #11, J. Worsham, Montgomery. He is in the second row from the top, 4th from the left (right in the middle). What a treat to see the face of an ancestor from 144 years ago!
