Do you know this man??

Can you identify this man??  This hand drawn pencil sketch was found behind another picture of a little girl in a blue dress.   Our dear patron, Ms. Preston, purchased the lovely little girl for her daughter’s room sometime in the 1960s.  She purchased it at the little antique shop, Mrs. Saufley’s,  in Mt. Crawford.  Recently, Ms. Preston  was cleaning the painting and decided to remove the backing.  Surprise!!!  This well rendered image was staring at her. 
Is this your grandfather or some other relative?  We want to know and we have a surprise for you if you do know.  The picture was on display at the Main Library in downtown Harrisonburg.   It is currently at our North River Branch in Bridgewater.  Please let someone at the that branch know if you have information or contact Cheryl Metz in the Reference Department, or at 434-4475 x129 or
