Tommy Jones Family of Beverly Plantation, Minter City, MS

I have three photographs taken probably in the 1940s, could be 1950s, of the Tommy Jones family of Minter City, MS -- Beverly Plantation. My aunt and uncle were staying on the plantation -- I assume working during World War II, but I don't know.

The photo says this is Tommy Jones' wife and children. The mother looks to be about 25 and has five small children. I believe they are all boys, but there is a child on her lap that you cannot see well. My guess is the oldest child is 6 or 7. Two photos are in front of the cabin, and you can see the woman and children very well. The other is from a distance. In that photo you can see how primitive the living conditions are. The area around the cabin is desolate.

If you think you are from this family I would be happy to share the photos. I have scanned them and can email them.

My aunt and uncle are long deceased. I have no idea why they were in Mississippi. They were from SW Missouri. I wonder if they worked with the Civilian Conservation Corps and perhaps these photos are earlier than I think. They were married in 1932 and there certainly weren't jobs in MO then.
