Ginger, these last two pictures were sent to me by my cousin Lexie Layman Sherrells of Golconda. They are of Nora A. and John F. Layman, sister and brother, who died within 3 days of each other in Apr. 1889, probably of cholera. Apparently there was a photographer passing through the area, or there may have been one in Golconda at the time - I'm not sure. But, they certainly are interesting. They are buried in Little Grand Pier Cemetery.
