All I know of the Bannister one is my grand mother Myrtle Lou (Jones) Bannister and my mother Freda Sue (Bannister) Smith one of her sisters is beside her. Ruth Emaline (Bannister) Smith are on the porch beside the post and their brother Floyd Clay (Shorty) Bannister is in front of them. I know that it was taken in McKenzie around 1948, maybe a little later but not much.
