The names are hand written in pencil on the black paper of a small photo album that was in a box of things my husband's cousin, Frances, brought me to go through. The pictures are also labeled in blue ink and they are Ralph Strother and Edwin Strother, sons of John William (my father-in-law's "Uncle Johnny") and Linnie Bell Patterson Strother. I wish there had been a picture of their older brother, William Patterson "Pat" Strother as well!
When my father-in-law saw these pictures, he told me he remember Ralph was red headed. He laughed and said, "Uncle Johnny's boys could grab a rattlesnake by its tail, whip it and snap its neck. They'd string them up in the loft of the barn. One was so long it almost touched the floor."
