This photo is captioned as showing John Alexander ("Elic")
Haire and Tom or Charlie Collins. Apparently the one on the
left is Elic Haire... though this likeness does not seem to much resemble
other photos of Elic. The location would probably be Whigham, Grady
County, Georgia, and the date would have been circa 1920. Unlike the
rest of the immediate family, great uncle Elic apparently spelled his last
name "Hare"... or at least the U.S. Army (he served in France in W.W.I) did.
I am grateful to Frankie Collins Quamme and her daughter Kim Quamme
Miller who obtained a positive identification of Tom Collins from his daughter
Pauline Collins Ferrell and passed it to me via e-mail on 23 April 2003.
Tom Collins married Annie Trulock. My great uncle George Washington
Haire (Elic's brother) married Annie's sister Allie Mae Trulock. The
Collins family members also passed to me..would you BELIEVE...? THE
RECEIPT FOR THE BUGGY!
