Maybe you can help solve the mystery of this picture.  Writing on the back says it is The Johnson Family.  The only known person is Benjamin Austin Johnson, the man on the extreme left.  The rest are unknown, although they apparently are members of his family.  The photo looks like it was taken around the turn of the century.  The picture was probably taken out around Sugar Creek in the old Commissary community since that is where B.A. Johnson owned a farm and lived.
B.A. Johnson was a Lieutenant Colonel in the Confederate Cavalry who received a confederate pension from the state of Arkansas in 1916 shortly before he died.  He was my great great grandfather.  His daughter, Barbara Ettabell Johnson, married Eldo R.C. Biggs.
