Who Am I?
If someone else can recognize someone in the picture, then I could approximate their age and then date the photo. That would tell me if it is possible one of them men is my 2nd great grandfather.
I sent a copy of the photo and the men's faces to Rosalie Gregg. She had never seen it, nor did she recognize the men. She thinks, however, the photograph could be of the first bridge across Ventioner Creek west of Chico.
If you could find a place on the Wise County page to place these links, I would be so appreciative.
Here is a closer picture of the men:
Here is the important one - the close up of each of the men's faces:
Faces of Men
My 2nd great grandfather, Samuel Young, moved to Wise County about 1874 from Denton County. His second wife died there in 1880, and he married Mariah (Turner) Powell at East Mound in 1883.
He moved in the late 1880 or early 1890's just across the county line to Jack County.
His brother Ezekiel P. Young, also moved to Wise County, and was living somewhere between Bridgeport and Chico.
Again, thanks for any help you can provide.
