(photo taken circa 1898-1900)
This photo was located at the annual Route 127 Yard Sale in Anderson County and Mercer County, Kentucky.
Ancestry.com has a family tree which contains a man named "Arthur Delbert Reynolds" who was born 1877 in Anderson County KY, and died 1953 in Louisville Kentucky. I am almost absolutely certain this is the person in the photograph, because the family tree I found contains some photos of other relatives, and some are nearly identical to the Delbert Reynolds I found. And the location in which he lived is in the exact area where the photo was found.

His death certificate states that he died at age 75 of congestive heart failure, in Louisville KY (Jefferson County), where he had probably been sent for medical attention. He was buried in Mercer County where he had lived all of his life. He was laid to rest in the Spring Hill Cemetery (Harrodsburg, KY). I made a quick trip to Harrodsburg and found the stone for Delbert and his wife Nora, as well as other members of his family, and added these to FindAGrave.com.
