From left to right they are: Russell Henley (I am thinking he was a friend of the Sam Jones family), Sam Jones (Norfolk industrialist and entrepreneur who married an island native and built Berkley Castle, Berkley Manor, and other prominent Ocracoke buildings in the 1950s), Homer Howard (my grandfather), Walter C. O'Neal, Sr. (store owner), William Jones, Howard Jones, May (last name unknown, employee of Sam Jones...or possibly island native Mildred Bryant), Charles Jones, and Mary Ruth Jones.
William, Howard, Charles, and Mary Ruth are Sam Jones' children.
