The George W Burrises had moved from the farm to town. My grandfather (back row, second from right) would shortly be on his way to the Panama Canal Zone.

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?

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.
