    George Edgerton Gambrill and family photo taken in Martinsville., around 1914. Annotation probably done by a cousin.
    Writing at bottom of picture seems to say "hat in hand Jim, Uncle George, Theo, Dick, Ted on Auntie Kates knee, Girl at back Nellie Traynor". Also, handwriting on the back of the picture suggests that the girl Nellie is Kate's sister. Boy on the end (far right) is John S, the eldest son.
