1. First is a picture of a snowplow taken in the winter of 1919.  It appears that Mclean is off in the distance.

2. Second photo is Percy Ernst Kinard (b. 16 Oct 1901 and died 22 Jun 1956 in California) of Mclean and his sweetheart Lillian Blair of Mobeetie, Wheeler County Texas.  Percy was the son of Milo H. Kinard.  His mother's maiden name was Kunkel.  At least two children were born to Percy and Lillian. They probably had more children but I show at least a son, Kenneth Earl b. 1927 in Tarrant County, and daughter, Bettie Lou b. 1930 in Gray County. Percy's family was enumerated in the 1920 census as follows:  Precinct 5, ED 97, Mclean, Gray County Texas, pg 10B. 

3. Third photo is Maggie Blair and Rosie Mullen.  My mother wrote on the photo the picture was taken in Mobeetie.  Rosey was born about 1902 and was the sister of J. Franklin Mullen.  In the 1920 census they, J. and Rosey, were enumerated in Precinct 7, ED 98, Gray County, pg 2A. 

4. Fourth photo is Lillian Blair and Meca Mullen.  I do not know the relationship between these individuals.  I assume that we have Mullen and Blair sisters.
