Alvie Congrove, (unknown) Ralph Leonard Knupp: A little background: this looks like it could be a photostrip like what came out of photobooths of years gone by. There is nothing written on either the front or the back of it. On the left is Alvie Congrove. He lived his entire life in Parkersburg. On the right is Ralph Knupp (also known as Leonard Knupp). He was born in Belleville and left West Virginia not later than 1940. As it happens, Alvie was married to Ralph's sister Florence. Could all three men have been related? Could this be a photostrip of three friends where two of them happened to be related by marriage? I appreciate any responses on this.
My big question is: CAN ANYONE IDENTIFY THE MAN IN THE MIDDLE?
