Noah Weaver, Noah Elwood Weaver, Paul Henry Weaver- Henry Eicher my legacy of father's - Remembering on Father's Day

A series of photos of from Noah Elwood Weaver's albums.  A request for father and son images from the curator of an exhibit led to these being uploaded. It occurs to me that in the early albums, N Elwood took photos, not only at home, at two family homes on Main Street in West Carrollton, he also visited farms and other natural sites in the Miami Rive Valley with his son.
