This group picture is probably of the Leeper Chapel crowd in Crawford County, Illinois around 1900.  The church was about 2 miles southwest of the John H. Taylor home on the Hardinville Road.  Grace Vernon Taylor is in the front row, with white hair.  Grace loved to fish.  John H. Taylor is behind her and to the left with a goatee-type beard and moustache.  Jeane Taylor, their youngest daughter is second from the right in the back row, wearing a flat straw hat.
