This picture is of my father, Samuel Ellis Campfield, who was born in 1909. I am assuming he is 3 or 4 years old, and I don’t believe they left the Sumner County area before 1913. I hope to find out someday where the orchard was located. The picture is on the back of a postcard and written on the back, (by, I assume, my grandmother to two of her granddaughters, one who was born in Sumner County in 1908) is the following:
“Well Vera and Clarice I wish you was here and go in the apple house when ever you wanted an apple and get some cider to drink. That is a piece of sheep hanging by Ellis”.
