This is the only known picture of my grandmother, Willa Susan Tackett (b. 12-18-1896, d. 6-26-1983)when she was a young child, (at about the age of 9-12 years). I 'm guessing it was about the time her mother, Thomas's first wife, Amanda Alice Hicks, died. Seated next to her is her father, Thomas Henry Tackett (b.5-14-1877, d. 7-1-1950), and behind him is his mother Mary Ann (Pollyann) Hicks Tackett (b. 7-22-1858, d. 12-11-1934). This picture was given to me by Janet Barras. Photo was taken about 1905.

Rev. Harry C. Long was the minister that officiated at Granddad's funeral service. He had this for many years and decided to send it to me a few years ago. I really appreciated receiving it. It lists all of the children except Uncle Jim who died in the early 40's, so add him to the list of children. This should put the family in context for those who didn't know Thomas Henry but had questions regarding his children.

Photo was taken in July 1950.

Aunt Zi received this in the mail. It was sent to her by Phyllis Blankenship. Phyllis is the daughter of Aunt Pene. This is a picture of Thomas Henry Tackett holding his son, James Brewster Tackett. Uncle Jim was born in April of 1905. Photo was taken in 1905 or 1906, probably Olive Hill, Ky..
