|Charles Slaughter Morehead, 1802-1868|
At least we think it's him.
The picture we have comes from a very old Album that held a number of CDV's and a few tintypes. We are fortunate that some of the pictures have names written on them and most of them are Morehead's with a few Gunn's in there as well. The Morehead and Gunn Family had several connections in their day. My husband, a Moran, is related to the Morehead family through his great great grandmother, Caroline Morehead Gunn. She is the daughter of Turner Morehead and Mary Polly Ann Hewitt Hooe. Caroline Morehead married Lyman Taft Gunn and the Moreheads have another connection to the Gunn's via the marriage of Sallie Boyd to Lyman T. Gunn's son, Lyman Cephas Gunn. To see a very messed up family chart take a look here. Anyway, according to the Consanguinity Chart my husband and Charles Morehead are 1st cousins, thrice removed..
We can't say for certain that this is Charles S. Morehead but when you look at the provenance of the picture the odds of it being him greatly increase.
