Family of John Wesley Brinkley & Sarah Ann Clifton Brinkley

This photo of the John Brinkley family came to me dated with all parties identified! They are my ancestors and they are not a handsome lot!

**Update** October 9, 2013: Thanks to cousin Jo Porter for catching the wrong name on the person in the back row, right side. This can't be Eliza Jane "Layde" Brinkley as she died in 1890. It has to be her sister, Sarah as she was still living. Thanks Jo, for catching that!
