The Witcher Family
I need the help of anyone who might know who these people are. It was taken in June 1934 in Red Boiling Springs, Tenn. The only thing written on the back of the photo is "Witcher Kin". I believe some of them maybe the family of Nancy Jane Rich who was the wife of Bailey Jasey Witcher. If you can help, please drop me a line!
