from Andrea:

"These are my great grandfather at Columbia I love how it says '99 but its 1899!"
"There is a book entitled something like "A Naturalist in the Guianas" and Orleans Longacre (my great grandfather) went on the expedition. This is him from that time period.
He later died alone in a sanitarium of dysentery. At this point my grandmother moved west with my grandfather to California where she met and married a man from Connecticut who had moved west as well, and went on to build the first home/lot in Brentwood from black market wood during the depression.".....

*thank you to andrea for sharing these amazing photos and the equally incredible history behind them...
