Will, Sam, And George Perkins; New Mexico, 1941

my grandmother's brothers, Will, Sam, and George Perkins, at the Perkins' homestead, a few miles west of Melrose, New Mexico;

written on the back- "June 26, 1941";

Members of the family had filed on homestead land in 1905. Sam and George, lifelong bachelors, had mostly resided there since 1906. Will moved there sometime after his wife died in the 1930's.
