Thanks to William Gaulding,

This picture is taken in Linn Township about 1909 - 1910. Standing left to right: Cordelia Crawford Whiteside and Fidenia Crawford Fillpot (daughters of John Newport Crawford and Keziah Julian Crawford), Rowland Fillpot (son of Fidenia and Jim Fillpot), William Crawford (son of John A. Crawford), Charles Franzo Fillpot and Beatrice Fillpot (children of Fidenia and Jim Fillpot), John A. Crawford (holding corn stalk on the right - son of Keziah and John Crawford). Seated in front of her daughters is Keziah Julian Crawford (age 83). Standing in front of Beatrice Fillpot is Fannie Crawford (daughter of John A. Crawford).

J.E. Fillpot & Son store was located in El Dorado Springs in the early part of the 20th century.  The family moved to Oklahoma (about 1929)  J.E. Fillpot was Sheriff of Cedar County in 1901 & 1902. He went by the name Jim. The only people we can positively identify in this picture are in the center and to the right side of the doors. First is Minnie Miller Fillpot (daughter of William B. and Orlena Foust Miller), Franzo Fillpot her husband (and son of Jim Fillpot), Fidenia Crawford Fillpot (wife of Jim Fillpot). We believe Jim is the one standing in the door. Would love for someone to recognize the building and tell us where it is (or was).
