All of the people in the photographs are from Scott County, TN. or have connections to the area. A great deal of these pictures were handed down to me by my father Herstle (Buck) Gibson. They were handed down to him by his mother Maude Gibson. Granny Gibson lived on Mud Street of the New River community in Scott County.
Most of the photographs were taken in the 1930's and 40's.
Talk about pictures in a box! Most of these photographs were kept is an old cigar box. My father, his parents and siblings are all gone now. I have decided to try and find the idenity of these people in Granny's "cigar box" photographs. I am sure many of the people were friends of dad's family in New River.
If you have any information or are related to anyone in these pictures please e-mail me and let me know. Please add the Gallery and the name of the photo (example Gallery 1, unknown 7). I will post the info. next to the photograph. If you see yourself in one of the photos, or you are a close relative, I will be willing to send you the orginal photograph.
