1901 Linton Family Photo

From my great-grandmother Frances Barber Linton Montgomery’s notes: “This is one of the homes built by Captain John Linton.  One of his sons was married in the log room, which is still part of the house.  At the death of Aunt Mary Janes the other heirs’ interest was bought by Catherine Linton and her children Alice and Edgar Linton, where they continued to live until his death in 1919.  The home place and forty-five acres of land was then sold out of the Linton family to Howard Mudd for $158.00 per acre.  The log room is still in this home to date of this writing, October 1944.  The picture of this home was made in the year of 1901.  Four generations are represented.”

This picture was taken in Washington County, Kentucky.  I have great-grandmother Frances’ list of who is in the picture and spent a good part of yesterday trying to figure out who is who!  She did give directions as to who is standing by whom, sitting, etc.  The hardest part were the children!  I think I have everything correct – however, there are two small boys on the left side of the picture that are not mentioned, and are not in any of the lists.  The numbered picture and list follows:
