The picture is John Thomas and George Ann Easton and their 1 daughter and 7 of their 8 sons.
Maybe this picture was taken on the porch steps of their house in Independence, Kenton County, Ky. ?
I know the man in the 2nd row from the bottom at the far right is my grandfather Ambros Easton.

The elderly couple in the middle is John Thomas Easton and his wife George Ann (her maiden name was Welch).
They both died in November of 1927 so this picture was taken sometime before then.

Bottom row: Omer Easton

2nd row (left to right) : Vollie Easton and Fonnie Easton (the twins),
then John Thomas and George Ann Easton (the parents), Clarence Easton, and Ambros Easton

3rd row (left to right) : Charles Easton, then Mary Abbie Easton, then Everett Easton

4th or top row : don't know who this is? It is not the 8th son Eddie Easton.

The parents of the children:
John Thomas Easton born 3 Apr 1846 in Bullitt County, Ky., died 23 Nov 1927 in Independence, Ky.
and his wife George Ann Welch Easton born 22 Dec 1851 in Ky., died 22 Nov 1927 in Independence, Ky.
(they passed on to heaven just 13 hours apart both of pneumonia)

John Thomas and George Ann Easton did have 8 sons and 1 daughter.
