Copy of Mayberry.jpg

The is a water color painting by Willaim Ludwell Sheppard(1833-1912), 2nd Lt., Richmond Howitzers, Confederate Army. The original is in the Museum of the Confederacy in Ricmond. My uncle visitied the museum and found this on a postcard. It is an extremely strong resemblance of his grandfather and my great grandfather, Mayberry G. Small. Maybery served was a cavalryman in the Confederate Army of Virginia. When I find a photo of Mayberry, I will post it so you can see the resemblance.

This is very interesting. It is very possible the postcard is his likeness.
