This is an old reunion of the Jones family – I estimate it was held about 1929. It was probably held in Milton County, Georgia. Milton was where most the Jones family of that time lived.
Milton County, Georgia, no long exists. The northern part of Fulton County a small portion of Cherokee County made up Milton. Now, there is a movement to get back on the map as a real county again.
The posing preparation for the picture it looks they tried to follow the conformity of churches of that time: The men on one side and the women on the other.
See the three kids on the left? Two of them are Anna's mother's brothers. Anna's mother is the shortest female on the women’s side. She was about 9 years old at the time.
Look at the row of men on the left. One person stands out because he did not have the top part of his dress suit on. That is Anna’s mother’s dad. His kids are right in front of him.
Looking to the women on the right, the first person in the women’s row is a man. He may be also be oldest one there and will do what he darn well wants to do.
