Another photo, this one a close up, of Audra McDonald Croston (on the right) and myself, Cynthia Dawn Adkins Carper. Audra and my grandfather, John W. Shanholtz, were first cousins as their mothers were sisters. Audra passed away less than a year after this photo was taken.

This photo was found in my grandmother's things after she died and has been identified by Sharon Mullins Baldwin as our great grandfather, Smith Ferrell. He was the son of Patterson & Arisba Dingess Ferrell and died when he was only 40 years old.

Nothing written on this photo, just the date (July 1985) stamped on by the developer. The woman in bed has been identified by Sharon Mullins Baldwin as her grandmother, Edith Ferrell Flemings. One of the remaining people she identified as Roberta Flemings, and the rest as adopted family of Edith's son Ronnie Flemings.

Back says "Gene Allen Peyton, age 9, 4th grade, 1970-1971 Jewell Johnson's." Do not know who he is other than his name, or if Jewell Johnson was his mother or someone else.
