This is one of my Mom's pictures. She is in the back row in the middle.
She was Thelma Adkins. I would like to know where the picture was taken, and who the other people are.
My Mother was the daughter of George James ADKINS and Martha Jane REEVES ADKINS.

I think this is a picture of one of the sons of John Morgan ADKINS, but I don't know which one.
He would have been a younger brother of George James ADKINS.

In going through an old family picture album I came across this photo. No one in the family knows who the people are, but the consensus is that it is a Taylor photo. At first we thought the gentleman in the top right was my grandfather, Eugene Smith Taylor, but decided that it wasn't. Then we thought the gentleman in the bottom left might have been my great grandfather, John Albert Taylor, but just aren't sure. John Albert Taylor and his family were born in Sumner County, Tennessee and most, if not all, worked for the railroad in someway. I believe that is what brought them to Erin, Tennessee. John Albert Taylor died in 1935 and is buried in the Erin City Cemetery. His wife Ella Belle Smith is buried there and I believe two of their daughters -- Johnnie Pearl Taylor and Looney Wise Taylor (don't know their married names). Eugene Smith Taylor is also buried in the same cemetery in Erin but in a different plot. John's brother Henry Dulin Taylor is buried in Sumner County, and we believe their half-brother William is also buried in Sumner County. There were three sisters -- Mary, Josephine, and Augusta -- and possibly another brother Robert. Nothing is known about them.

I'm hoping that someone will be able to identify these people. The photo intrigues me because the girl in the middle looks like me when I was 13 or 14 years old. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
