David Wesley White (1853 - 1947), and Martha McCollum (1855
David White was a brother to Sarah White and a son of William White and Rachel Brackett.
David writes: "My mother's grandfather, John Drury Logan,
was born in 1859 in Union County and moved away after his marriage to
Martin in 1879. Evelyn was a daughter of Ervin Martin and Elizabeth
Martin, all of Union Co. John Drury was a son of William R. Logan (see
Narrative of his life) and Mary Reid Logan. Mary's parents wereas John
Reid and Nancy Logan Reid, of Union Co. I have lots of unknown photos
this family, but most of them were probably made in Bradley County, TN.
The picture post card that I have attached says "from Georgia Hughes;
to cusen (sic) Evie". So the card was sent (I would guess about 1920)
to Evelyn Martin Logan. The children could be cousins through her
family. I am not aware of any Hughes' in the family except for John
Logan's step mother, who was nee Hughes. The card probably could be of
children living in Union Co, but possibly from Fannin Co or another
county. Some of these people could still be living."
Do you know who these people might be?

This photo was taken about 1930, probably in Cleveland, TN where she lived from about 1920 until her death in 1944.
David adds: "I am searching for a photo of Washington Odom."
