One of the great joys that this blog brings me is the opportunity to meet "new" cousins and hear from "old" ones. Recently, my husband's first cousin, Marcella Dymale contacted me, and we have been sharing Selph genealogy. She shared these wonderful portraits of the Selph family with me. The woman in the portrait on top is identified as Lavinia Emily (Burton) Selph. Marcella's sister identified the man as Lavinia's son John W. Selph. However, both Marcella and I feel that he is probably John's father, Rev. Duncan Hyder Selph. Can any one out there shed any light on this?
The portraits on the bottom are identified as being two sons of Lavinia (Burton) and Rev. Duncan Hyder Selph: John W. Selph and Duncan Hyder Selph Jr. I have seen other published pictures of John W. Selph, and feel that his identification is correct.

Thank you for sharing, Marcella!
