To My Secret Cousin, Greeting

Here's a picture of my Great-Grandfather, Wil (William).  I am posting it because I think he looks just like one of my readers...as I see him in the side bar to to his journal. 

I want to see if my reader sees the resemblance... and if he thinks it is a family trait.

Surprise, secret cousin.

Great-Grandfather Wil

The nose is about right and my youngest brother had the sandy-colored hair (mine is gray trending to a dirty yellow-white these days - used to be dark brown. Father's was black). We have similar streaking to our beards, particularly these days. However, the ears are all wrong for my family and the lips look too thin to be one of "ours". The forehead slopes back in a fashion uncharacteristic of my ancestors. The cheeks are right for my paternal grandmother's side of the family. Her father, also a "Wil" was known to frequent California during the gold rush until his grub stake ran out...

So, it's a possibility, Chuck. I'd be happy to send you our "Gedcom" file so you can look through it looking for common ancestors.

See comment below....Wil caught on.  He knew I was referring to him.  But alas, too many charactaristics other than the beard didn't match.  Well, if he is not a cousin, at least he is a loyal reader.  Thanks Non-cousin Wil.
Yes, it would be fun to compare geneologies
