John Crismond and Lizzie Bruce Helvey

In this photograph, thought to have been taken in Bland County, Virginia, about 1914 or 1915, John Crismond Helvey and his wife Lizzie Bruce Helvey are the couple on the right. Between them are two young girls, Grace Elkins and her younger sister Maudie Elkins. The two men on the left are prospectors.

The Helveys have hitched up their conveyance in order to take the two prospectors to the railroad in Wytheville or Dublin.
