This is a picture of a group of soldiers from World War One. At least 4 are from Hunt County. My great uncle Jackson Massey is in the front on the stool. After the war he went to East Texas State in Commerce and was principal at A. L. Day elementary school for about 30 years. He died on the steps of the school in 1953. . On the back of the picture, which is cut off the last three letters of the man on the left is ..ler from Fairlie, the next two are from Wolf City, last name I think is ....ne and then .....mrow. (My first guess was Sumrow since there are people by that name from Celeste I believe, the next is ...nompson from Dawson and Suggs from Clarksville. I know nothing about these men except what is on the picture. Jack Massey did go over seas and fought for a short time against the Germans.
