I believe the identity of the men in the photo attached has been confused in some of our correspondence. The older man in the center it Tilden Blanton my great grandfather. The man leaning on something on the right is Blaine Blanton, Tilden's middle son and my grandfather.

I just wanted to send this to you and get it straight.

How is it going?
