Hello.... My name is Andrew J. Clark
I live in Quitman, Texas.. Two pictures
of a family taken in the mid 1920's 
would there be any possible way of
getting a family name?.... They were from Salyersville, to the best of our knowledge..

I would like to have help identifying
this two pictures:
1) Picture of William Greenville Sparks and Pricie Smith with an unknown man
who I would like to identify.
2) A picture of two of my ancestors who I believe to be John Samuel Creech,
son of Samuel Creech (b:1804 in Harlan Co.) and his wife Nancy Boggs. I would like corroboration of their identities if that is who
the are indeed. If so they are my maternal 
Great Grandparents.
Thanks, Harold Sparks

This photograph was taken somewhere in 

Belfry, Pike Co., KY, during the period 1920-27 

(estimate). The only person in the photo that can be identified is Walter H. "Bill" Maynard, the Scoutmaster shown in the back. It is know that Clayton Varney is contained in the photo as one of the scouts but which is unknown. Would love to have the others identified as it is believed that one or two could be relatives. Believe the bulldog to be "Bozo," pet of the Scoutmaster.

I just got this picture from my Ky home. Pic belonged to

 my grandfather Willard Castle who just passed away 

Feb 15, 2001.

 

Willard was a supervisor for Elk Horn Coal Corp.

I guess that is why he had this pic. It had been stored 

away at his home.
