This is my great-great grandfather, Marcene A. Twaddle. He was born August 15, 1835 and died May 11, 1914. He was the son of William and Hannah (Hooten) Twaddle. He fathered twelve children by two wives. He and his first wife, Elizabeth Mullen, had ten children. His second wife, Sarah Jane Pollock, gave birth to two. He is buried at Mt. Auburn Cemetery in Colchester, Illinois, beside his second wife. He also has a stone at Scott's Cemetery, McDonough County, by his first wife.

Judging by the way his jacket is fitting (top button pulling), he either has outgrown it or has borrowed it from someone.
