The same cousin that owns the wedding photo of Fount Blackwell and Roxie Annie Green owns this original also. This is Fount Blackwell's parents, John Hamilton Blackwell and Sarah Elizabeth Ward Blackwell. Not sure what year it was taken though, the family thinks it was taken around the same year that Fount and Roxie Annie got married and maybe at the same time.
