This photo is in the Brass Armadillo Antiques Mall in Des Moines, Iowa booth #260. I saw it there on August 13, 2005.I am not connected with anyone at the mall nor do I know the booth owner, I just saw the portrait and since it was such a nice family picture with everyone identified, I thought I would post a message and see if anyone knew this family line.The telephone number at the mall is 1-800-775-2140.Please contact them directly, as I have no further information, and these are not my family lines.
