The man is George W. SMITH (he married Juda GARRETT daughter of Abraham & Margaret Flowers GARRETT) and it is noted that the two girls with him are GARRETT's. Maybe someone could help identify them

I found this photograph in my grandmother’s (Vechil Annie Miller Parton) picture box. I have asked other family members but no one knows who she is. If you know who she is please contact me.

This is a confusing picture. I am told it is the Mothers Family of Emma WINTON, but I get a feeling it is a SMITH Family --there is no match on 9 boys and 3 girls in the WINTON line. Also, this house does not match the house that I have in other pics. If anyone has any information contact me.

GUNNELS, Nicholas

This picture is of Nicholas Gunnels. I do not have a date or place. This was my grandmother's photo, Nancy Jane Gunnels. It went to my Mother after my grandmother died

I need to know which Nicholas this was. It looks as though it may be mid 1800's. On the back it says Uncle Nick, then it has Daddy and that is circled. It also says mom sent one like this to Aunt Nancy when dad died. This is part of my family that I cannot connect, and if anyone recognizes this photo, please let me know.
