I have two more pictures of Tom Newby (brother of my Great Grandfater, David Newby). The picture with the background has the photo studio name, H.A. McCallister 1819 Market St.
St. Louis, Mo. This adds even more questions to the story of Tom Newby, did he live in St. Louis at one time, or did he just stop and have his picture made while traveling through. I don't know where or when the other picture was made.
