Justification to identify William Henry picture and location south of Big Spring, Kentucky:  (Reference: Back of copy of photo provided by Susan Scott Keith to Jessie Virginia Scott Williams in letter post marked 14 Jan 1984 "Copy made from picture in album from Louise Scott.  She told me this was the old Spring House on the old place in Kentucky C. B. Scott - 1976 [in different color ink but probably same handwriting] Maybe Wm Scott in doorway".) (Second reference: Back of much older (more yellowed, wrinkled and worn on edges)  Very old looking pencil, "Uncle Will Scott at the Spring House in Ky."  Different handwriting, ink, probably much later, (maybe handwriting of Louise Scott?) "Wm H. Scott, Big Spring, Ky - (Father of Louise Scott)"  )  This second copy of photo provided to Jess Scott by Susan Scott Keith October 1998.
