That’s Daniel Henry Harrison Arline in the big hat, front row, among some the 15 surviving of his 19 (!) children and their families in Sanderson, Florida in about 1915. The youngest, Sophronia Arline Williams (b. 1897), died in Tampa in 1985. The inset is of Daniel in about 1861. These photographs were provided to the Family Search database by Richard McBride.

In 1861 he was Private Arline, 6th Georgia Infantry, and he was captured at Sharpsburg in September 1862. He was with the 2nd Florida Cavalry by the end of the war and spent most of the rest of his long life in Florida. He was said to be skilled as a farmer, veterinarian, carpenter & coffin maker, butcher, and even extractor of teeth.
