Today is the birthday of the real "Uncle Sam" Samuel "Uncle Sam" Wilson He was an Revolutionary War veteran who owned a meatpacking plant in Troy, New York. He provided beef to the Army of 1812 in barrels stamped "US", indicating that they were "US" property. The soldiers began joking that the initials stood for Uncle Sam referring to Wilson, unwittingly inventing the character.Sept. 13 1766
As you all know I have been working on ( parts of the person I am) genealogy. As I do my research I get it on Ancestry.com. My great great grandfather had 12 children ,so it has been exciting to find what happen to them and their children. I have made contact with so many family members I would have never known. This is a picture in 1930 of my great grandfathers niece and her son in his cleaning business. This is a 4th great grandfather from a different side of the family we could not find until now.1792---1861
