A Leona Deyo surprise

About two weeks ago, I was surprised with a very pleasant email and picture from one of my ‘cousins’. Barb had been researching the Deyo family and made a very exciting discovery, she wrote:

Look what I found while searching online at SUNY Plattsburgh. Leona Deyo, Altona, NY. They give her age as about 2 yrs. old. This is a part of their special collections.

I was told that “If this image is used in any publication or posted online, we ask that this credit line is used: Courtesy SUNY Plattsburgh Special Collections. This way other people know where the original image is held.”

Needless to say, I was thrilled, as was my dad (Leona’s son). Below are copies of both the original photo (left) and an enhanced version of the original (right).
