    Notice the well behind him. One of my earliest memories is pulling a bucket of water from that well before it was capped and running water was piped into the kitchen.

      David,

      I spoke with my Aunt Gayle Wray Orange last week. She confirmed that the picture was in mid fifties, probably after Luther's funeral. She confirmed the order was Clyde, Earl, Russell, Ralph, Howard and Victor. She said Uncle Luther had a stroke in the 40's and passed in 1955.
      I am attaching a scanned copy of a enlarged photo that was hanging over my grandfathers (Ralph) mantle of his father, Robert Marion Monroe Wray, during the Spanish American War. My Aunt Gayle has a copy of his discharge papers. I think Myrtle had the original. I have the large version of the photo attached now hanging in my living room. I didn't see it on your page so I thought you might like to have it. I will also get with Gayle as soon as I can to get scanned copy of Victor in the military uniform photo. I'll send more photos as I can get them scanned. I'll keep in touch.
