Group Photos - Jonesboro, Circa 1900  
in Washington County, Tennessee

Marla Millsap acquired these wonderful group photographs in Phoenix, Arizona, and has shared them with the hope that they can be identified.  If you recognize any of these people or locations as being Jonesborough, Washington County, Tennessee (or another Jonesboro in Tennessee or elsewhere), please let Marla know, or post a message to the Washington County mailing list.  Thanks!


Marla's scanned images are much clearer than these, but I tried to reduce the file sizes just enough to download in a reasonable period of time without sacrificing too much resolution.
