Mary Jane Lauderdale of Vicksburg brought in this photo that she said has always been a mystery to her. It belonged to her mother, the late Jane Barber O’Neill, and has remained with her mother’s belongings. The writing accompanying the photo apparently taken at Cedar Hill Cemetery indicates it was shot in 1909 and included members of the Alice and John T. Fox family.

Historic photos taken in and around Vicksburg are featured on Sundays in The Vicksburg Post. Many of the photos are from the J. Mack Moore Collection at the Old Court House Museum. Though not all photos were taken by Mr. Moore, they are part of the collection given to the museum by longtime Vicksburg Post managing editor Charles J. Faulk. Appropriate photos from the public will also be accepted and published. To submit a photo, contact Karen Gamble at 636-4545.
