Commentary by Marty Weeks, February 9, 2006:

That must be Kenneth Scott, son of Elva Porter, who was the daughter of Otis Porter.  I remember Elva visiting both Grandma Lucille and Nanny in the early and mid-1960’s.  I believe she lived up to about 1970.  After Elva’s first husband Percy Scott passed away, she married L.T. Hurst.  I never met Kenneth Scott and do not know what became of him.  Lucille said, as far as she knew, he was still alive in the 1970’s or 1980’s.  She would have known about him as long as Elva was alive.  I am sure you know that the Charlie in the photo is the brother of John Frank (Grandpa) Porter.

It is a good photo of Uncle Charlie.  One thing I really like about the photo it is at Mineral Wells Park.  I believe that is the park right by the fairgrounds and I believe the family reunion has been held at Mineral Wells Park, the Fair Grounds and Highland Park.
