From: Danny Towell

I am trying to find any of the Blair descendants from John and Tom Blair (brothers). Tom was married to Cora Walters. Tom was born in 1864. I have a bunch of photos (tin types) from the late 1800's of this family. I am looking for someone to identify the people. Some are my family but I believe that most are from the Blair family. Let me know if you can help. Thanks,
