This is a wonderful picture of a group of young people on top of Castle Rock
near Oregon, Illinois. It includes my grandparents and was taken sometime
prior to their marriage in November 1912 and I would assume on the 4th of
July or some other patriotic holiday due to the American Flags.

My grandfather, Charles Swegle, is the man standing on the far right of the
picture holding the flag. My grandmother, Sophia Carney, is sitting on the
far right holding the flag that is caught in motion by the camera. I love
the hat.
