Its a 19th century person. No, Rob. ....not Uncle Joe.

He migrated to the US in 1848 . A year older than Lincoln.

Quite a good singer, apparently.

Google if you wish.

He was prevented from doing something. .. until Lincoln changed the law.

Elizabeth Keckly reported that Mary Lincoln told her husband:

"He's a demagogue, and if you place him in power, Mr. Lincoln, mark my words, you will rue it some day."

Who was the person Mary was referring to?

Good answer, Roger, but it was not Seward.

Regarding Seward, Elizabeth Keckly reported Mary said, "I wish you had nothing to do with that man. He cannot be trusted."

Kudos, Steve! This is what Elizabeth Keckly reported Mary told Abraham when she learned he was going to appoint Johnson as Military Governor of Tennessee.

RE: Who is this person?
You know who the person below is ... but it doesnt look like a photograph. More like an image.



Any ideas where it first appeared? Search on google allowed.

Ok. I'm feeling generous. Here's some clues ...

RE: Who is this person?
No, sorry Roger ... Ah. I see a photo associated with Pittsfield, Illinois which was almost certainly the basis for "my" image.

Any ideas ? that second youtube clip is quite a good clue.
Here it is again

Well I started to search through some old Welsh newspapers, but the results were a bit overwhelming
https://newspapers.library.wales/image?r...sc&rows=24

So when is this "Old Enough To Know Better" supposed to kick in?

RE: Who is this person?
Yes, Gene. Sorry. I tried to work out how I could point out that the image didnt actually appear in Wales.
Thanks for helping me.

It first appeared in the USA. Utica. But why? and whats the Welsh connection?

   

I'll try to gather another clue whilst I sleep
