Photo donated by Mickey Hicks 23 Sept 2003

The photo was taken by Bailey & Son, Photographers, Palestine, Texas
who also took the town photo of Trinity.  The original photo is on a 5" X
8.5" card probably made at the same time as the town photo of Trinity.  The
subjects are Mr. Willie Dawson and Miss Emma Bright.  I do not know how or if
these individuals are related to me.  However, Bernie Carroll, my great-
grandfather Jonah Carroll's sister, married Sam Dawson in 1912 in Trinity

Trinity Co marriage records indicate an Emma H. Bright married Will Potter in
1887, and a W.T. Dawson married Eugenia Williams in 1885.  If this Emma is
the same as in the photo, the photo would have been taken before 1887 when
she was still unmarried.
