Favorite old photo: Watson family

2012-05-21 - Melson Ridge Road, Adair County, KY - Photo from Joyce Reeder collection; photographer unknown.
Joyce Reeder sends this favorite old photo
from the Melson Ridge area of South Adair County, KY. In front are William (Bill) Watson and wife, Arminta (Minnie) Bunch Watson. Their daughters are in the back, but I don't know which is which. (From Mike Watson: left to right: Lily, Ella, and Lela.) I am thinking the one in the middle is Aunt Ella but not sure. Son is William Watson. Lela Watson Reeder is my grandmother. The family lived in the Melson Ridge area of Adair County, Kentucky. I would appreciate it if anyone could identify the daughters. Thank you. - Joyce Reeder Clicking ReadMore accesses letter from Historian Mike Watson with more on photo.
