  • She discovered the old picture in her mother’s closet, but no one seemed to know the identity of the distinguished looking man.

Historical society member Christina Rice hung the picture in her home and every time she passed it she would ask, “Who are you?” Knowing he was related to her, Christina was determined to solve the mystery of his identity.
