Time it was, and what a time it was, it was
A time of innocence, a time of confidences
Long ago, it must be, I have a photograph
Preserve your memories, they're all that's left you

David J Cantwell

David J. Cantwell was born in 1883 and died in 1973. He must be sort of a relative because his family ties in with the Burchett's who are also sort of family. Jewelle kept two pictures.

Dave Cantwell is in this picture and I think the one in the back is Victor Rhea. The house in the back is my great grandmother's house where my grandfather grew up. When we saw the foundation of this house, there was only a road without any of this cleared land. The forest has reclaimed all the land surrounding the foundation.
I guess at the location because I did find another picture on of Dave Cantwell and his brothers. 
The photo is identified as Jim, Charlie, and Dave Cantwell in Jim's front yard, bordering the Clinch River. 

The other photo is of Victor Rhea and his wife Cornie on the right and Jim Cantwell and unknown female (probably wife) on the left. Victor Rhea was my great uncle and the photo was taken in front of my great grandmother's home, also on the Clinch River in Hancock County, Tennessee. 
My great uncle, Victor, also had a home on the Clinch River. To drive the road now does not show what kind of life they had since many of the homes are gone and the forest has reclaimed its land.
