If you'll notice, Lewis Brown is the handsome man with the Army uniform on on the bottom of the tree beside his beautiful wife Louise (yes, I'm biased). This tree was included in the scrapbook featuring Penny Brown, their daughter.
In the album featuring Lewis Brown, the left half of this tree will stay and Louise's right have will not be shown.

Notice that Lewis's tree has more holes. There are blocks were no name is known at this time. It's interesting that the maternal lines have names but the Townsend and Brown men do not have parents in the great-grandparent generation. Notice how I do not have photos of William Townsend or Mary Clabaugh. Given what I've learned about William and Mary Townsend, it's not likely they had photos taken given how poor they were.
I attempted to add embellishments to this page but I couldn't find anything that wasn't distracting. So, I think sometimes, all you need on a page is photos and background paper. Don't be afraid to not have embellishments.
Hopefully you'll see that incomplete trees are still worthy of inclusion in your scrapbook. Someday I hope to know the parents of Samuel Curtis Brown and William James Townsend. Until then, Lewis' scrapbook should have the most complete family tree that I have at this time.
