Photo of the Week UPDATE: The Stoneman Family

Thanks to a recent correspondence with a descendant of Iver Edwards, ukelele player for The Stoneman Family band [pictured below], we have changed the caption of our original post of this photo in 2010 to include the correct spelling Edwards’s first name. The correct spelling is “Iver Edwards,” rather than “Ives Edwards” as we originally posted. Many thanks to all the readers that help us with our work.

Taken in Galax, Virginia, in 1928. From left to right: Iver Edwards, George Stoneman, Eck Dunford, Ernest Stoneman, Hattie Stoneman, and Balen Frost.
