1912 Photo

The children are standing on a wooden walkeay across a creek or swampy area. If you look closely, the boy on the far left has a pick on his shoulder, and is balancing a small cannon on his knee. The third boy from the left, Jesse Parker, also has a small cannon on the ground in front of him and is holding a long pole, maybe a ramrod for the cannon?

The only children identified are 3rd from left, Jesse Parker, the 6th from the left is Mildred Parker and 3rd from right is Alberta Parker.

If anyone knows what they were doing, or know who anyone else is in the picture, we would love to hear it.
