This is Dad, Luther Perkins, in his basketball suit.  
This is in Welsh W.V. and dad was about 14-16...

Luther Perkins
     This is my Great Uncle Squire Jim Perkins and his son Wesley in War W.V.  He also had a son Named Tom Perkins. He was the oldest of the siblings and well ready to leave before his parents died. He did not stay on the Powell Valley side of the county.  He worked mines, along with my Grandpa, all over the S.E. Mountains.  He married and raised a family in Davy, W.V. where he and Grandpa worked.  A slab fell on him in the mines and held him til he pulled himself loose. This killed while trying.  The accident happened around 1904+08...  His children were orphaned as He and his Dad, Peter Perkins, had been.  The mine is in Big Sandy, W.V.  There was no union then.  Later as it was, my Grandpa "Pap" was an organizer for the Mine Workers in McDowell and Mingo and surrounding Counties. I'm sure there are many descendants around that area, however, I have never met them. Great Uncle Jim was 6' 8" and weighed right at 279 lbs.
This is My Uncle Hubert Harrison "Chalk" (chalk eye, a name from the mines), my Aunt Jean, Virginia Francis, and Dad Luther in 1918.  This picture was most likely taken on Peabody Mountain where Grandpa Perkins worked for a while.
