I presume that you are referring to "Lawrence County Missouri History" published in 1974 by the Lawrence County Historical Society. It has a biography of James Joel Cherry, Sr., along with a photo. It also has a biography of James Joel Cherry, Jr., without a photo. Both were county officeholders and are listed in that section. I would be happy to send you a scan of the photo which is only 2" high and 1.75" wide. The biography was written by one of his descendants, Mrs. Ruth (Cherry) Fossett. Ruth died several years ago. Her son Max was in my mother's MVHS class, but he also died several years ago. Max's children were basically in the same MVHS classes as myself and my siblings. I will have to make some contacts to see if I can locate them. I'm not sure who might have Ruth's family photos now. Please email me using the email address shown with this posting and I will email you a scan of the photo.

By the way you can purchase a copy of the book on CD from the Lawrence County Historical Society, if you are interested.
