Six more people in the photo were identified on December 15, 2004 by David Crabtree. The ones David can identify are numbered.

Lady number 1 is David's Aunt Eathel Crabtree Dahms. Eathel is a sister to number 2, and daughter to number 3, she married Albert Dahms.

Man number 2 is David's father, Cortney Crabtree. Cortney is a brother to number 1 and  son to number 3. Cortney Crabtree married, Eunice Lorene Hill who is a niece to lady number 5.

Number 3 is David's grandfather, Ervin Richard Crabtree. He married Alta Mae Rich, and is also the father of number 1and number 2, and brother-in-law to man number 6 (they married sisters).

Lady number 4 appears in two pictures belonging to David and in those photos she is identified as Ethella Carr.  David goes on to say that "Lady, number 5 is my mother's aunt, Jewell Hill Patrick.   She is a sister to my grandfather, George Arnold Hill, and was married to Cecil Patrick."

Man number 6, is Will Hedrick, brother-in-law to number 3, married to Nora Rich.  According to David, "Other people in the picture that look familiar are: the round faced lady with the wide brimed hat in front of number 2 looks a lot like my mother.   The young man wearing bibs two people right of number 3 looks like Delmer Hedrick, son of number 6.   The window that is propped open, at the left edge of that window is a man wearing a wide brimed hat with the brim rolled up on each side, I believe that to be "Clint" Maxwell, my father's cousin."

One of the subjects in the photo has been identified by Barbara Jean Smith as being her mother, Pansy Pendergrass.  Pansy is pictured directly in front of the lady standing on the right in the doorway. According to Barbara the photo was taken about 1927. Barbara said that she and her family lived in the house that used to occupy the lot where the "new" Reeds Spring post office sits."
