Vickers/Foster/Rusell Family Picture
Submitted by Jo Cluck

Jacque Leehy-Dunning says: I contacted my cousin, Robbie Vickers-McKeage in Arkansas (who was a Vickers - Erastus Vickers and Ada Belle Foster were her grandparents). 
Robbie and I both believe this picture is not a wedding picture. I noticed everyone in the picture is wearing a black flower of some sort and Nancy Ann Deen Russell is also holding a picture of someone.
Also, most of the people in the picture are Russells and extended family members. We believe the picture is of a funeral.
