I recieved this photo of my GG Grandfather and my GG Grandmother Mary yesterday from my cousin and I have to admit I was surprised at how big he was I had always imagined him as a skinny guy haha
Great photo, Buff. But he does not look big.

My ggfather was also not big. However, he did look like someone you would not want to tangle with.

His discharge paper from the Norwegian army had him at 5'7" and strong of limb.

But I'll bet your ggfather was his equal.

Of such was this country made. Strong men and women.

Ok I have a question does him holding a bible mean he was a preacher? Reason I ask is I talked to another cousin while back and he said he believed my GG Grandfather was a preacher and that was the first I had ever about him being one and I can't find out anything to confirm it.

Guessing that a Bible of that size was meant to rest on a pulpit.
