JC, I have my doubts too...

1. Notice that Flem appears to be about the same age (or younger) than he is in the photo where he alone. 
   I'm very surprised he got rid of the mustache. I would have thought that once a man had wore it since becoming an adult, 
    he would have been averse to shaving it off in his "declining years". Notice that sometimes he wears glasses in photos and sometimes not.

2. My records have Chester Arthur Brown being born in 1903. That would date this photo to about 1906. Flem was born in 1850, 
   so that would make him a very old looking 56. But he actually looks a little younger than in the "mustache" photo.

3. I have Bennie being born in 1883, so in 1906 he's a very young looking 23 year-old.

4. Norma Brown was born in 1894, so she's a very old looking 12 year old.

And all of the foregoing begs the question: where's Molly and the rest of the family?
