    Those eyes look Irish to me, pale eyelashes that go with the reddish blond hair, thought I could not see any freckles that normally go with them. AND the ears are a definite giveaway, I know loads of Irish guys with ears like door handles! Please don't tell any of them that I said so! 😉

      I wouldn't be surprised — plenty of refugees from hard times in Ireland emigrated to America, including one or more of my own ancestors. I haven't been able to go more that one generation back from my own grandfather, Robert Dougherty, so don't know when my Irish immigrant ancestor(s) arrived.

    Certainly enjoy the photographs you choose to post. There's so much of life etched in those faces.

      Thanks! This has been a long term project. I had scheduled a lot of these in advance and this was the last one scheduled… I guess I'll work on that a bit over the next week. I've got a folder full of images that I've saved to choose from.
