Sewell & Gallaway Family


This photograph was obtained from Martin Sewell's grandmother, Mary Ola Gallaway Sewell. The man in the front row, far left, is believed to be Mason Perry Sewell, Martin's paternal great-grandfather. The man on the front row, far right, is believed to be Asa Sewell, his paternal great-great-grandfather. This would have been taken in or around the region from Lewisville, Lafayette County, AR up to and including LaGrange Township (approximately 5 miles north). From the size, dress, and postures of the participants, I would assume this was a studio photo. And, if that is Asa Sewell, father of Mason Perry Sewell, then the photo would have to have been taken prior to June 1862. If anyone can identify the men in this photograph, or if you have further information on the time period that this was taken, or name of studio, please contact Martin at the e-mail posted below.
