      Hi Linda, nice to hear from you! I would love to have a picture of of Thomas Young Lytle and Eliza Ann Burgin Lytle. I’m actually related to each of them independently. I don’t have any Lytle pictures at this time. I don’t believe I’ve ever seen a picture of Captain Thomas Lytle.

      Thanks for commenting!
