My cousin, Dick, sent me some more family photos and a copy of my GG Grandfather’s discharge paper, today.
A scanned version of the birthday photo. I recently learned that there are at least three sets of family, the Comers, the Houchinses, and the Newmans. That would mean that there are at least three sets of GG Grandparents in the photo. I believe that aside from Elizabeth (nee Ellison) and Thomas Houchins (the couple extreme left, second row) and Joseph Baker Comer and Evangeline Comer (nee Smith), it is likely that the couple who are 2nd and 3rd on the left of the first row are Anna Mariah (nee Taylor) and John Owen Newman. Further investigation may give me the couple on the far right end of the first row.
Below are Joseph B. Comer and Evangeline with their children, circa 1899.
First row: Sarah Comer, Joseph Baker Comer, Evangeline Comer
Second row: Dessie Comer (Dickerson), Grant Comer, George Allen Comer, Mellie Comer (Houchins)
Above, Harry and Jessie ( Currie) Houchins, my great uncle and great aunt. Harry was brother of my grandfather.
