Return to William Sutton Gwin and IdaEliza Basset page

These photos were sent in by my third cousin, Ann Gray, who descendsfrom Ida Basset's older sister Charlotte Basset and her second husband,Rev. Henry Landon Derby of Virginia.  The picture of Billyis dated 1937-38 from the writing on the back of it which says, "BillieMarable at front door on way out to school--he has nice pretty hair--thatslick is same thing the boys were effecting at school at that time--heis 18 years old."  (Billy was born 27 Oct 1919.)   In anotherhand, written in pencil on the back of each of the photos, is the close-but-erroneousinscription "c. 1930-35 Cahawba Alabama Basset cousin," which should haveread "c. 1937-38, Talladega, Alabama, Basset cousin."   If thesepictures were taken at the same time, then Kate's and Nell's ages would've been around  45-46 and 32-33, respectively.  Thanks,Ann!
