The Jabez Capps & Samuel Linn Beidler page

Mike Maxheimer: I recognize the triplets mother and father and I imagine the baby is Uncle Linn (mom's brother, he was 9 years older than the triplets). I see Uncle Don, Uncle Tell, the old man in the back is Samuel L. Beidler. He is the father of all these people. These are all Uncle to the triplets. Imogene was the only girl.

Linn was born Sept 25 1897 and the triplets Dec 19 1903 - so Linn was 6 years older. So this must be 1898 or 1899.. So that must be Don right in front of baby Linn? The Old guy is Samuel Linn Beidler (looks like his other photos). Tall guy is Dr. Will Swain. Rell I think is back row far right. Paul is back row far left.
