"This photograph provided by Janet Fearby was taken in the mid to late 1800s" it is reprint from photo locket that belonged to either Annie Drew (nee Reece) or her daughter Elizabeth Jane Knox (nee Drew). Heather Fearby suggested it may be George Watson Drew (George and Annie Drew?s second son or it could be George Drew Sr). However he left for the goldmines in approx. 1849 at 28 years old - It could also be Standish William (eldest son) - who died in 1879 age 35.
