Old Photo: Civil War reunion at Weed, Adair Co., KY?

2012-01-05 - Adair County, KY - Photo from Collection of Judge Scott Lawless.
Judge Scott Lawless writes: "This photograph is in the possession of my family, and I understand it to be a photograph of some Civil War Veterans from Adair County. The only persons identified on the back of the photo are: Joel Moore (front row, 3rd from left); Lewis Moore front row, far right; Nathan Moore (my Great-Great-Great Grandfather,) 2nd row, 1st from the left; Rob Coffey 2nd row, 4th from the left; and Amus England 2nd row, 7th from the left. While this photograph may have been taken at a family or community function, I am wondering if instead it would have been posed druing a reunion of area Civil War soldiers. Such events would have been common, as evident from the reports appearing in the Adair County News at the time. -SCOTT LAWLESS. Update from Brad Conover: James K. Polk Conover, seated 6th from left. Conover was also a former Jailer of Adair County.
