I believe the young woman in the back of this photo is my Great grandmother, Lucy Ann Sharp Strawmatt
Caudle (b. 1844 @ Illinois, d. 29 Jan 1889 @ Severence, Doniphan Co., Ks.). The rest of the
young people are children of James Samuel Caudle (b. 19 Oct 1837 @ Wayne Co., IL, d. 4 Nov 1904 @
Denton, Doniphan Co., KS. and Lucy Caudle. Both James & Lucy are buried in Oak Hill Cemetery, 1/2 mile
north of Severence, Ks. Lucy Ann is the mother of my grandmother, Malinda Strawmatt.
