Daniel Autrey Hanners & Family
Doesn't this look like a nice family get together?! Some look pretty camera shy tho.
Starting with the background, to the far left, is grandpa's mother, Mary Ann Autrey-Hanners, next, with his back to the camera, showing his suspenders, is her father, William Russell McFalls Autrey., a.k.a. Mack. To the right of him, is his wife, Harriett Adeline Parker-Autrey. The tall boy, with his hands in his pockets, is MaryAnns oldest child, and grandpa's older brother, Claybourne Gladstone Hanners, next, looking down at his hands, is grandpa, and last is Mack Autreys mother, Clarinda Gitchell-Autrey, sitting in the chair, with her back to the camera, thus making four generations of grandpa's family.
What do you think the family is doing? Were they having a picnic? I like the old washtub, turned over in the foreground. I would think it was wash day, except the ladies look too dressed up, and the tub is turned over. Maybe they were just taking a Sunday rest, under the tree's.
