Thanks Joe, it was really unexpected. Both photos were taken at Governor's Island, NY related to the Hudson-Fulton Celebration, 1909. I found a newspaper that says my 2nd cousin met with Wilber Wright to deliver a check for $5000 as payment for their exhibition flight during the event. As it turns out, he was responsible for getting the Brothers to show up for the event and in the end responsible for the iconic photo of the Wright Flier flying in front of the Statue of Liberty. The article also says this would be their last exhibition flight and they would go on to focus on the marketing and sales of the airplane. Very cool stuff!!!
