Wilder, TN Coal Mine Picture


It is quite dark but the original photo is very dark. I do not know who the men in the picture are except that the man with the pipe (check mark out beside him-far right) is JOHN ALLEN REYNOLDS...my great-grandfather. He is the son of JEFFERSON REYNOLDS and MARY JANE CROUCH. On the back of the photo is handwritten WILDER, TN. Although there is no date I can tell you that JOHN ALLEN REYNOLDS was born 16 Sept. 1875 and died 24 Feb. 1947 and he was already gone from Tn. in 1913 when he and his second wife had a child in Missouri so that will help to narrow down the time frame.
