I have it on good authority, from Mr. Don Pate, an avid Itawamba historian and genealogist, that Oscar Steele was known as Bud. (See previous post here.) Oscar was married to Florence Dulaney, daughter of Joseph Benjamin Dulaney and Martha Johnson, and thus would have been a brother-in-law to Charlie Dulaney and uncle to Vastel, Clothel, Clastel, and Vecil who were pictured in front of Oscar "Bud" Steele's house in the previously posted photograph. Viney Steele was Oscar's oldest daughter, Martha Melvina Steele, born in 1909, while Exie Steele, also shown in the photograph, was Viney's younger sister, Exa Fain Steele, born in 1920.

Thank you, Don, for sharing this information. I always hate posting photographs when I don't know all of the folks pictured.... doesn't quite seem right to not acknowledge each and every one.
