The couple standing on the left are Dillard Bumgarner and his wife, Jane. Casey Bumgarner is standing beside Rufus, holding Mary Lou. John's mother (no name given) is seated directly in front of Jane Bumgarner. The others are not identified. The photo was possibly taken in Russell County, Kentucky, possibly ca. 1900.
