Composing the history of our family is a work in progress. New challenges appear, dear folks leave us, and new discoveries are made. Often a box of pictures or artifacts bring about as many new puzzles as they solve. Our kinsman Dr. Dan Sullivan and I are working such a riddle right now. Maybe you can help?
Last year Dan acquired many wonderful photographs from members of our Swartwood family in Fulton, Missouri. The Swartwoods are descendants of Margaret Fecht (Aunt Mag) and her first husband William Bost. Among the images are two photographs (one of which has been cropped and enlarged by Photoshop). Dan and I are at a loss about the identities of the people in the pictures. Where was this General Store?
