Dear Readers: I am publishing this photo because I need your help. Steve Chou shared this photo with me, and he says it is from the George Mahan collection which links it to Northeast Missouri. That and the fact that it was taken in a courtroom are about all we know. I am working on a genealogy project, and wonder if ... maybe ... if it might be connected to my family. Does anyone, anywhere, have any information that could help me identify this photo? The date? The place? The people? If so, please email me at, or leave a message for me at (573) 248-2750. Thank you -- Mary Lou Montgomery, Courier-Post editor
