Do You Know My Name

I've been identified!


From time to time, I will post a photograph of unknown individuals hoping someone will see their faces and remember their names. This man may be from Franklin County, Mississippi, or a neighboring county. The photo was carried in a pouch with other photos by the late Willie Scott. Written on the back of the photo is A Herring.

The Herring family of Franklin County, Mississippi, married into my maternal family.

According to Allen & Helen Herring, this is a picture of their brother Alton Herring [b. abt. 1914], son of Hurley Herring and his 1st wife Estella Jones. Allen & Helen are half-siblings by Hurley's 2nd wife, Arie Crockett.
Identified Feb 24 2012.
Thank you, Cheri Herring.
