Front row (left to right) - Virginia Wallen, Zora Norton (granddaughter), Mable Norton (granddaughter), Sam Wallen, Virgil Norton (grandson), Louise Wallen * Back row (left to right) - 2 neighbor ladies not named, Fannie Wallen, Martha Wallen, Minnie Wallen, Sophia (Thacker) Wallen, William M. Wallen * Circa 1908, Wallen-Francisco Cemetery (probably), Wabd, Rockcastle Co., Kentucky.

Grandchildren listed are the children of Euna Ellen (Wallen) Norton who died in July of 1907. At the time of this photo, only Jesse was still living, the last of 9 children by William's first wife Serena. Sophia and the other children in this photo are William's second family.

My thanks to the Lyon family (descendants of William and Sophia) for the many photos passed on to me! I will be forever in your debt!
