At the time this photo was taken (1864), Samuel Downing was over 100 years old and one of only six known survivors of the Revolutionary War. He was photographed by the famed Civil War-era photographer Matthew Brady. He is my great-great-great-great-grandfather (my grandfather's mother's mother's father's father ;-).
