I have old photos of a man named ELDON, who looks to have been born around 1880. These pictures were taken in Hutsonville, Illinois around 1920, and includes BERTINA NIDEY-STANFIELD and DIMPLE URLENE TREADWAY, who are also members of my direct family from the Robinson / Hutsonville area. I am wondering if my picture of ELDON is ELDON JOHNSON, son of Thomas Johnson and Sarah Jane McDaniel.
Anyone with connections to this family PLEASE contact me directly.
