Homer L. Counts

This photo is in the possession of Mrs. Glenn Sparks. The photo is in an album which formally belonged to Reuben Fletcher Ross.

Homer was the son of Eunice (Ross) Counts.

Reuben Ross (my great uncle) sold Homer some land in 1918 ("for $1 and love and affection"),
and Homer's first born son was named "Harlan" (also Reuben's son's name). Eunice was Rueben's daughter who died in 1894 at age 31.
All of Reuben's seven daughters died young, as well as his wife, Theresa Ellen Offill.

Note the "leggings" in the photo and the outfit he is wearing looks somewhat military.

Her first name and middle initial is taken from Maine census records."
