This photograph taken about 1910 is of the descendants of Samuel Hinton (born 1837, died 1892) and two wives -- Mary Permelia (Meadows) Hinton (died 18 September 1868) and Minerva (Padgett) Hinton (pictured), (born 14 May 1842, died 8 April 1920). It was donated to the Catlin Historical Society by George Joseph (Joe) Moody. Photo includes 54 family members with 40 being identified.

This is a photograph of those attending a reunion 23 May 1912 at Henry Shute's house about one-half mile east of the old Parker School on the south side of present (1983) Road 1100N. Of the 46 family members, 8 are identified.
