Family Portrait of the Lyman Cephas Gunn Family, ca.1884

Lyman Cephas Gunn is a brother of Sophia Riley Gunn, the wife of John Williamson Moran.

Lyman married Sallie Boyd Dec. 14, 1870.  Their first son was Lyman Buckner Gunn, 1871-1876.  Daisy was born in 1873 and married Clyde Ezzell making her not only a cousin to Fannie Moran but her sister-in-law as well. Daisy died in Madison TN in 1972.  James Boyd Gunn was born 1874 and married Bess Ralston. James died in 1953 in Paris TN.  Mineola was born in 1876 and died in 1897 while the family was living in St. Louis.  Ellis Morehead Gunn was born in 1881 and died in Nashville in 1902.  Their last child was Carolyn "Carrie" Gunn who came along in 1887 after this picture was taken.  She married William Elbert Davis. Carrie died in Madison TN in 1972.

The picture has a nasty crease which I've attempted to erase via the magic of photoshop.  It's not the best job in the world but it's not the worst either.  :)  I've included the before and after.  The names go left to right in the photographs.
