"These are children of Claborne and Ethel (Forrest) Huff."

"I don't know which of Claybourne & Ethel (Forrest) Huff's children these are, but Rebecca (Williams) DeCoy and Alice (Williams) Click, Forrest descendents and genealogists, list the Huff children as follows: Lillian Y., born 1910; Jannie B., born 10 May 1911; Leorst O., born 14 Sept 1913; Lavina C., born 1916; Aquilla E., born 23 Apr 1918; Donald M., born 20 Apr 1920; Glenna Fern, born 29 Oct 1925.

The photo was taken at a house on Rockhouse Road in Carter County that, incidentily, is still standing. This is the same house that is pictured in the photo of the Forrest family I sent you earlier. This photo is from the collection of my mother, Donna (Roberts) Carter.

Ethel (Huff) Forrest was my grandmother's (Sadie Belle (Forrest) Roberts) older sister."

"These photos were taken in April of this 2006 when I was last home. The scales, I'm told, were used in Clayborn Huff's store and Post Office at Deevert, Kentucky. However, if one looks closely the dial reads "Not legal for trade." Deevert lays along the Tygart in the vicinity of Rockhouse Road, just off the Iron Hill-Everman Creek Road."
