      When I was given this photo, my aunt's notes said that this was William Burton and Sarah Kerr. Peggy Willet also that states it is William. But their first three children were girls making this less likely to be them
      Marlo, my mom's cousin, found this photo with a note saying it was Richard & Edwina. I changed the caption based on Marlo's evidence.

      My mother says that the woman looks very much like her grandfather, Neilie. Edwina was Neilie's mother. Look how big Richard is sitting in that chair. He looks like he is sitting in a child's chair. Either this was a small chair or Richard must have been a very tall man.

      The picture definitely looks like Richard in a later photo we have. The picture of Edwina is suspect when compared to a later image. However, the later portrait was actually a painting.

      Richard Burton built this house. Neilie was not born here, but he lived in this house. Beverly Burton lived in the house when the picture was taken
