This wonderful old photo belonged to Jerry's grandmother, Mary Celia Hettick Dugger. She had written the names of the individuals on the back of the photo. Jerry dated the photo based on the birth dates of the children of Jesse B. Hettick (Mary Celia Hettick born 1884; George Riley Hettick born 1879; James Allen Hettick, born 1888 and Hattie Rosella Hettick born 1890). Jerry went on to say that many of the names were unfamiliar to him and that he wasn't sure if one of the names should be Van Bebber or Vanbebber since his grandmother had written the name both ways on the photograph.
