I'm 65 years old and have lived in the Akron-Tallmadge, Ohio area all of my life. For 10-years (1957-1967) I lived most summers at our home in Cook Forest, Pa. I'm a U.S. Army veteran (1971-1973). I collect many things such as: antique cars, antique firearms, movies, movie props, old newspapers and posters, Wyatt Earp items, Civil War items, John Wayne items, items from the old west including Native American items, just about anything historical. I've been married for 42-years. My wife and I have a son and a daughter and four granddaughters.

I wonder what all the snapshots on the table are. Possibly the early pictures of the Wright flying tests?

I got this e-mail from a Wright family decendant and she was kind enough to allow me to add it here. I have since corrected the mistake with the picture. ________________________
You have a picture of Lorin Wright 1910 in the pictures of the Wright family and I can guaruntee that Lorin was not a woman. Lorin was my GREAT GRANDFATHER! It has to be a picture of Susan Wright, the Wright brother's mother, or Lulu Wright, Lorin's wife. It definitely wasn't Katharine Wright and those were the only women in the Wright family. Lorin was the only Wright brother that married.
By the way, the Wright brother's sister's name was KathArine Wright not KathErine Wright. I know because I was named after my Great Aunt Katharine.
