Please note that this is the SAME photo that I have also listed as Thomas Anderson Carlisle. Our copy of this photo has handwritten on the back, "My grandfather, Thomas Anderson Carlisle".

I received a copy of a newspaper article about James Glenn Carlisle and it states that this same photo hangs in the First Methodist Church of Louisville, Mississippi until this day.
