Do you recognize any of your Tippah County Ancestors?

This picture was submitted by Rosemary Hollis.  Her great grandfather is in the picture, his name is Benjamin Franklin McAllister. He is the last man standing on the porch on the right side of the picture. He has a white beard and it looks like a step ladder is behind his right shoulder. Ben served in SC but moved to Tippah County shortly after the war was over.

Other known soldiers include Tony Mercer, he is the third from the left in the front row with his hands cupped, a hat, and suspenders. There is a man in the same line next to him and almost hidden over his right shoulder. There is a boy to his left and the next man could be Captain A. C. Rucker. William Calvin Wommack is the tall man standing behind the others, 4th from the right in the bottom of the picture, right under Ben McAlister.
