I was contacted today by a 4th cousin from the Forrest side of my family. This person sent me three lovely colorized portraits which were taken about 1865. The first is of my 3x great-grandfather Dr. Alexander Forrest (1806-1875), the second is of his wife, Barbara Ross MacKenzie (1805-1880), and the third is of their daughter Helen Forrest Glendinning (1840-1926).
The portraits have been in his family for generations, and seem to be perfectly preserved. A real treasure!
