Henry Sheridan Self (1866-1904)
Cousin Chris writes: "This is Henry S. Self, son of Thomas B. Self and Mary Burton. He is the grandson of John Self and Alsey Eaton. I think this was taken the same time as the one of the 3 kids. His wife left them, and he remarried in 1896. His first wife was Lizzie Merritt, 2nd wife was Allie Cummings. The family lived in Washington and Jefferson counties. Henry died in 1904 in DeSoto. He was a brakeman for the railroad and only 39. We don't know yet how he died."

Alex and Zettie (Self) Weston

Cousin Larry writes:
Zettie Self (1879-1941) and her husband Dr. Alex Weston (1871-1949)--this is probably their wedding photo. Doc Weston was a respected doctor in the small town of Waterloo, Alabama which is located near Florence in NW Alabama.
