This photo was made from a Coltharp School photograph taken about 1917 when he was seventeen. The original was in his mother's, Granny Cline's, old trunk. After his father's, Chief Cline's, death, the black and white photograph was given to Joe's children, who had copies made and painted in color. My mother was given the original photograph for safe keeping, which she treasured all the days of her life. I am my grandfather's namesake. Check back later for an update on this.
