Might be an ancestor of mine. All my hicks relatives are from arkansas!
I love these old photos. They are so reflective of their lifestyle. Notice that George is wearing a 3 piece suit and has a pocket watch chain showing.  My husband is a retired watchmaker and he has many pocket watches and chains in his collection that would have come from that era. He has surname, Jones, so he may be kin.  We live in Tennessee. Thanks for sharing.

Hello:  I am going to  Chattanooga, Tenn on business, early in March. Are you located anywhere near there ? I love old watches. I have one that I inherited.  I don't know the age of it. Could your husband help me date it ?  Please text me: Gertrude Stoermer, (951) 316-3075

1889. Boy, there is a lot of material in that dress. I hope it was more comfortable than it looks. She looks so small in in.

Thank you for the photo. Always a kick to see the styles of dress.
