Tim Schaeffer The Melton family in the picture came from Indiana. Joel Wilson Melton was born Jan 1 1850 in Sterling, Crawford, Indiana. The family had been in Indiana for a couple generations. Joels grandfather James was born in North Carolina about 1791. James father Elisha was born in Virginia. The ggggrandfather of James was born in England in 1620 and died in Charles City, Virginia. At the time the picture was taken, Joel and Elizabeth were visiting their children in Idaho Falls, Idaho. I have all of the names of people in the photo if anyone is interested.

Leon Horman Since Chelsea6 submitted her inquiry in 2005, it may be a little late for a reply. The Meltons came to SE Idaho from Indiana. They had come from the Winston Salem area of NC before that. I can give you information back further, if you would like.

Leon Horman The picture was probably taken around Rexburg, ID. It was probably at my grandparents home west of Rexburg but I do not know for sure.
