Sadly my father in-law had no better relations with his father, and his father also drank. Dan left home at age fourteen, and went to live with relatives in Poplar Bluff, before joining the Civilian Conservation Corp in 1938. (More on that later.) I would love to share pictures of Dad Hanners growing up in Doniphan, but I do not have any. Later I will share some of his younger brother Tom, and Uncle Franklin Hanners, that were taken in Doniphan.

Here is a closer scan of the same picture.

This is the left end of the picture. I have no doubt there were other relatives, and men from Doniphan in this picture, but none of them have been identified.
