Kosse Texas Family
Family of 7 posing for a professional photographer, Fletcher Allen.
Mystery: One of the boys standing looks like another photo I have with the name "L. Y. Arnold" written on the back. It was in an old album that belonged to the Long Family of Crawford and later, Floyd County, GA. I have found the Arnold name listed in the membership of some GA Primative Baptist Churches, but not L.Y. As one set my great-grandparents moved from GA to NE TX, I thought the Arnolds might have migrated too. Other names might be Davis, Jessup, or Long.
My ggg grandfather was Russel Arnold. He migrated from Panola county, MS to varous places in Texas--but settled in Wise county. One of his sons, a Wiley M. Arnold, served in the military out of Georgia. I'm not sure of what the tie to Georgia is, but I know one existed. I've copied your photo & data and am adding it to my files for future refernce. I believe there is problable a connection of some kind. Please feel free to contact me. brenda6209681 at [external link].
