I located every genealogist's dream today. In a box of stuff bought at an auction - I discovered a very old picture album with many pictures from around 1900 or before - including one that says it is his returning from the Civil War picture. It is a burgundy velvet album that had a metal closure (part of which is off) - with flowers on the front and the word Album. In the album (one picture per page) is pictures of Halfakers (many have names - including a number of what looks to be old tintypes in very good shape - Surbers and Pinneys. Some of the studio pictures say they are from cities in Indiana. A Cola Surber from Pulaski County Kentucky married Mary Halfaker. There is also an announcement for what appears to be a 50 year anniversary in 1909 in Pittsboro, Indiana for Mr. and Mrs. J. K. Halfaker.
I would like to get the album back to a member of the family. If you have these names in your tree, please contact me and I will see if some of the names fit. I will also post this on the Surber Message Board. I will do everything I can to get it in the correct hands.
