A family photo album was given to Alan by Mary Davis. It contains pictures from Charlie's family including his two wives, his father, and his daughter.

Most interesting are the series of photos that he had take of himself over the years. These look to cover from his 20's through his 60's. Since he was in his 40's when Abraham Lincoln was president and then assassinated, the stylish "Lincoln" beard of his latest two portraits might indicate his approximate age.
