6 generations of Sherwin blood. In the front row, my dad son and brother. The photo in the back is from right to left my dad, my grandad (who I sadly never met), my great grandfather, and my great great grandfather. His photo was taken at work. He was a marble mason. It's shame photos don't go back much further than that (mid 1800s) as we have traced our ancestors back further. I come from a line of goldsmiths, silversmiths, and marble masons. My brother is the first male in 100s of years, in my fathers direct line, not to have served an apprenticeship.
