||This photo was sent to us by Janet Elliott, who had
identified her grandfather and his brother in the picture.
From left is Ernest Perkins, b. 1889 in Baxter, Missouri. He died 1960, and is buried in McCullough Cemetery; and Steave Perkins, (Janet's grandfather) b. 1890 in Baxter, Missouri. He died 1923 and is buried in McCullough Cemetery.
The identity of the other two men was a mystery until Janet received an email on December 19, 1999 from someone who had seen the photo on this page. According to Janet the other two young men have been identified as Jake and Ira Bilyeu. Janet hopes to be able to find more information to tie in the relationship of the four men.
If you have information regarding the gentlemen please contact Janet Elliott
