Amazing photograph. Such strong expressions. I have an immediate visceral response to so many of their faces. I love how close your great-grandparents are sitting together.

And is that a neighbor in the back right corner?

I don't know who that is. It may be one of the wives of one of granddad's brothers.

It's a trip to me how some of the old photos are *just* family, and some include spouses and kids...

One was William Homer, my grandfather, but I believe he is the one next to your grandfather. He was a blond, the guy on the front row is not Grandfather, maybe he was "Uncle" Walter.
