Recently I was able to view and scan a picture of my great grandfather Leroy Joshua Parker ( often known as Roy) on a horse! This picture was taken by the Platt studio in Sandusky, Ohio. Though Grandpa Roy resided in Perkins Township, Ohio, I am reasonably sure that this picture was taken in downtown Sandusky, not far from the photographer's studio. Grandpa Roy was born on May 30, 1880. I am guessing he is about 9 years old, which would date this picture about 1889.
