Elwood Haney

This group is sitting on a footbridge on Smith Creek outside of Carter City.

Left to right:

Frank McGinnis (maybe), Willie Lewis, Elwood Haney (my dad), Hayden Haney,
Edward Ratliff, Johnny Lewis, Ellis Haney, Bill Haney Jr., Mary Faye (Sweeney) Haney

Photo is from about 1933.

"Hayden Haney still resides in Grayson. Mary Faye Sweeney is still living, the others have all passed to the other side."

Photo is of Elwood and Olive (McGinnis) Haney with children Earl and Lloyd taken in the summer 0f 1939.
A third son, Glen, would arrive two years later. The union of Elwood and Olive would dissolve 10 years later.

Noteworthy, is the Carter City school building going up in the background of the photo.
Elwood helped carve the native stone that was used in the construction of the school which is still in use.
