First I will put in a photo of my husbands 4th great grand uncle that was taken in about 1885 in London a few years before he died. A rather handsome man to say the least.
Thomas Wilkes Plaisted 1811 - 1886
Next are two photos. One of my husband and another of a gentleman from the American line. Note these two lines do not yet connect at this stage. Though looking at the photos I am sure they do somewhere.
My husband - photo taken May 2012 Bob from the USA
So looking at these three photos tell me what you think. Most definitely strong Plaisted
