This was found among the photos of James Annis Lafferty born 1875 in Texas. Who was in Mexico pre 1900 and in 1924 he was in Janos area of Chihuahua, Mexico. It was a friend of his and could have been a Mormon from the area there of Dublan or Ciudad Juarez. My dad Jim Lafferty went to Mexico in 1922 and stayed there until 1942.
