These are more of the pictures that may be a part of the Ramsey or Clack Stone family. As before, if anyone knows the identity of these people, please write.
There was no zip code, of course. Zip codes did not come into existence until 1963. It looks like this young fellow was dressed in a sailor suit or it could be a girl, but my first impression was of a boy.

This is a picture of George W. Dove. He was married to Cornelia V. Ward Walden. Cornelia was married to Littleton Tazewell Walden until his death due to a riding accident before the War Between the States. George W. Dove met his untimely death in 1895 so this picture would have to have been taken before then. Their daughter was Rose/Rosa Lee Dove who was married to Albert Lee Dalton.
Above is a picture of Albert Lee Dalton and Rosa Lee Dove.
If anyone has a picture of Cornelia Ward Dove, I would really like to have a copy.

The Photography studio for the above young ladies picture was C.R. & A. H. Blunt located in Danville, Va. I have been searching for a date for the picture. I already found where the photographer A. H. Blunt committed suicide on June 13, 1912. They also said that he was a photographer in Danville, Va. I found that in the Magazine Bulletin of Photography Volume 11.
About a month ago my brother gave me these pictures. His mother in law gave them to him. I don't know the exact particulars, but they supposedly are people that have a relation to the Ramseys or the Bennetts of Pittsylvania County, Virginia. Above are the first four photos. As before, if anyone has any idea about the relationship of these people, please write. There was a Clack Stone in the ancestry.com that had a brother named Jimmy. They served in the Civil War and someone used this Stone to apply to be in the SAR.
