Note by Michael Dye: I had previously received this photo from someone who had claimed it was Annie Musick Stinson Fletcher, d/o Elexious Musick & Lydia Thompson. However, I found the same photo on Lou O'Quin's website. I have conferred with him and he relates that his mother is adamant that this is in fact her great grandmother Cynthia Ball Lester Tiller and I have therefore changed the info here to reflect this.
