Photo provided to me by Ken Claggett. Aunt Rueldine said she remembered this photo being in her house when she was younger. Notice the lightening rod between Alex and Martha on the corner of the house. It is the only ranch around with a lightening rod like this.

Do you recognize anyone? Can you help with the identifications? Please let Melinda know.
