    Is this man a Wade or Barr?
    I received this photo from my Aunt Joan. She is not sure who it is. The high cheekbones do remind me more of the Wades, but I'm not sure if the date of the photo would be right. Celia Wade does look very old in her pictures, and Gus would have been older than Tabitha.
