Cornwell family

Another family member had a different picture of the Cornwell family in the muckfields. Boyd Cornwell (son of Clarinda Gibson), unk man, Phoebe Cornwell, Roy (her husband), America Collins Cornwell. The 86 year old cousin who had the picture said she thinks they were taken during a union organizing and the unknown man is a union organizer. She thinks the pictures were taken for the papers.

Rich Carlson Might the organizer be Okie Odell himself? I've only seen a few pics of Mr Odell, but it might be him (he was the leader of the Union that the families created on the Hardin County Muckfields in the 1930s)
