This came from the photo collection of Hillas and Eloise Brockett. Hillas was born and started life in White County, Illinois in 1900, was in Stoddard Co., MO by 1910 and settled with family in Cross Co., AR by 1920. The photo is most likely from either Illinois or Missouri. It is likely that this photo was originally owned by Hillas' sister, Effie Brockett Joiner, who lived most of her adult life in Parma, Missouri. The photo was probably passed to Hillas when Effie died.
This is near a logging camp, most likely somewhere in New Madrid County, Missouri. The man in the center with no hat is John Henry Mosley (1871-1937), but I don't know the rest. The Mosley family lived in Parma, New Madrid Co., MO in the 1910 US census and had settled in Cross County, Arkansas by the 1920 US census. This photo was an old photo postcard among about 6 from the Mosley family.
