Walter Welton Brown is a descendant of David Montgomery Brown (see Fellowship Cemetery index and records).
This photograph was dated about 1919. It was a Brown family picnic probably somewhere in Meridian - possibly the Park. Luna Kinard Brown dictated the names of the people in the photograph. Because they are not in straight rows, it is difficult to identify some of them. I will try to be as clear as possible. She did not remember the names of some of the children or the babies.
