Francis M. Darnall & Friends
One of the young men in this photo has been identified as Francis Marion Darnall, but the other four young men and five ladies are unknown. The photographer's name on the cabinet card appears to be "Fleming".
A Francis Marion Darnall, born in 1850, was a resident of Marshall County, Kentucky. In 1868 he married America Catherine Humphries who is presumably also included in the photo. It is impossible to see the ladies' clothing and hairstyles to help date the photo. If this is Francis Marion Darnall of Marshall County, the photo was probably taken during the 1880's.
