This is a photo of B. R. Matthews. The back of the photo is also marked "Nubia Tex". I believe B. R. Matthews may be related to the husband of my great-great Aunt, Ruth White Matthews. She was married to Thomas J. Matthews, born 9 August 1874, Hunt County, Texas. They lived most of their lives in Hopkins County Texas. I am interested in hearing from anyone with a connection to the Matthews family that may be able to better identify the subjects in this photos.
This photo was taken in or near Goldfield, Nevada. One of the gentlemen in the photo is my great Uncle, Brit (Bert) Murphy Stout from White Oak, Hopkins County, Texas. I believe he is on the far right. I believe one of the other gentlemen to be his close friend, George S. Faust. They worked for the Goldfield and Tonopah Railroad company. The lady in the photo could be Maggie Corning as my Uncle was one of her tenants. Please contact me if you can identify any of the subjects in this photo.
This is a photo of my gg-grandmother Martha E. Carpenter Gibson, seated to the left of her grandaughter Delomia Gibson Watts Fincher. Martha Carpenter Gibson was born in Troy, Pike County, Alabama on 26 August 1837 and died in Naples Texas on 24 January 1922. She married John J. Gibson in Pike County Alabama on 1 February 1860. John served as a Private in the Civil War in Company K of the 37 Alabama Infantry. Martha and John never had children, but reared my g-grandfather, Robert James Gibson. I can find no record of an adoption, but Robert James Gibson did carry their last name. My deceased Aunt suspected that his natural parent's last name was Tubbs, but I have not been able to confirm that information. The 1870 Federal Census records reflect that John and Martha were living alone as of 8 July 1870. Robert James Gibson's date of birth was 14 July 1870. John, Martha, and Robert moved to Texas between 1870 and 1880. I'd be pleased to hear from anyone who has knowledge of this Gibson and/or Carpenter or Tubbs families.
This is a photos of my grandmother, Bettie Lee Gibson Rivers Stout (right), with her sister-in-law, Ida B. Rivers Watson. I'd be pleased to hear from descendants of either lady.

This is a photo of my gg-grandfather, James (Jim) Madison Tuck and family. I believe "Sallie" to be his 3rd spouse and some of the children in the photo may be from his second marriage to Ellen Creekmoore. I have found James and Sallie living in Choctaw County Oklahoma in 1920 census, James age 67 and Sallie S. age 47. If you have information regarding James Madison Tuck, and family, I'd like to hear from you.
This is a photo of my great grandmother, Maggie Elizabeth Dycus Tuck. She was married to Samuel (Sam) Edward Tuck. I believe they lived in Cass and possibly Morris Counties in Texas, most likely near Marietta Texas. I am not certain about the identity of the children in this photo. I suspect the older child to be my grandmother, Gladys Ovell Tuck Irvin and the younger female to be Lydia Mae Tuck Irvin. Gladys and Lydia married brothers, Alvin James and Homer Irvin. The younger male in the photo may be J. B. Tuck, a brother to Gladys and Lydia. If you have information about Maggie Elizabeth Dycus Tuck, and family, please contact me.
