The photograph found in a box of Carlisle County pictures was identified as Walter Copeland. The only Walter Copeland in the Jackson Purchase area around the time this photo would have been taken was living with his parents Sipe and Mary Copeland in District 8 of Graves County in the 1900 census.
A Kentucky Death Record for Walter Copeland, born 8 December 1882 in Tennessee, lists his parents as Sipe Copeland and Mary Gamblin. Walter died on the 14th of April 1916 in Marshall County.
