I know this post is supposed to be wordless but I thought I should explain the concept.  I’ve read other bloggers who suggested there be a theme for certain days, so today I thought I would join in on the blogging bandwagon with Wordless Wednesday, just posting pictures with minimal or no words.  Today my Wordless Wednesday will be a tribute to the Erastus & Hannah Sophia Ballou Holt Family of Milton Township, DuPage County, Illinois.  You can read more about this family here.  Just click “read online” in the left column.  Click each page to turn.  Erastus’ biography begins on page 16.

Erastus Holt (1830-1872)
