Note from Laura:
The labeling on these photos is from my grandfather, FAY P. GREENE, whose mother was Sarah FAY. Sarah Fay lived with and by her grandfather James Fay for the first 30 years of her life......so I am assuming she knew something from what James and her father told her.

The handwriting is my father's - his father (b. 1885) was telling him what to write.
