George W. Lawson was born in May of 1853 and died in December of 1907. He married Maranda Jones. Maranda was born about 1859 and died between 1893 and 1900.
I don't know when this picture was taken. It was an old tin type.
My grandmother was the granddaughter of George and Maranda, the daughter of their son, Ellis Lincoln Lawson and his wife, Nancy Catherine Eulett Lawson.
