This past weekend I was in the enviable position of being in the Hill Country! As any of you know who has visited this part of Texas it is one of the most beautiful and interesting places in the world. Spring is the time most people enjoy going, but I think it is fantastic in any season. The highways through the rolling hills and small towns take you to places you'll always remember and to which you want to return.

I was not in the Hill Country this past weekend to enjoy the view, however. I made a side trip on my way home from Round Rock to the neat little town of Llano. I have had photographs in my possession for quite some time that belong to a distant cousin there, and since I was afraid they might have gotten lost in the mail I took them with me in the hopes we could go through Llano at the end of this trip.

I delivered the pictures and now they are at home in their proper place. My cousin who let me borrow them is in the Stone family. We wanted to share our common ancestry knowledge and try to identify some of those in the Mystery photos. I'm posting them here in the hopes someone may be able to tell us who they are. I'm also posting those we do know that were in the same box of photographs.
