Harland.This is again a funeral picture, taken at Alonzo's funeral in Yates Center, Kansas. The absence of Fred and Belle Ragle is curious, but this may have to do with the birth of their first child Evelyn on August 1, 1905, only months before the death of Alonzo. At that time, Fred and Belle were living in Colorado Springs, CO.
From The Odin Journal, Washington, Indiana, February 2, 1906.
