Sharon, thank you.I do have a photo of James C. Caplinger taken with my great-grandmother, Alice, and her son, Chancey Spencer, dated ca 1900 in front of their home near Crossville.
As you probably know, James Caplinger was a photographer.My father inherited much of his collection...many taken commercially or of a historic nature like the building of the viaducts and railroads through White County.I remember going with my father to disperse these photos to the families of known subjects in the photographs.Therefore, it is my belief that any family photos of Peacocks and Spencers would have remained with the family.
Somehow a photo of the elder Peacocks taken with their son or sons is missing.Should you find a photo of a family with an above average girth, the men of which have feet and hands the size of small giants...you will know that in your possession is a photo of the Peacocks.And I would like to make arrangements to receive a copy of that particular photo.
Regarding the Caplingers...I think James had a nephew that lived in Crossville...possibly a Raney / Rainey Caplinger.Also, K. or Cay Kelley that ran a loan company on the north side of Main Street between Main Cross and Walnut in Carmi as recently as the late 70's or early 1980's was a nephew or great-nephew.
Thanks again, and let me know if you find the photo of the 'little giants'.
