Photo Corner: Good Friends Alec Smith, Edward Everett Allen, and Newton Becklis

Alec Smith, Edward Everett Allen, and Newton Becklis, Reno, Nevada, ca. 1901-03Contributed by Cindi Allen Schmerber
Good Friends: Taken in Reno, Nevada, ca. 1901-1903.  The man on the left is identified on the back as Alec Smith, the man in the middle is my great-grandfather, Edward Everett Allen, and the man on the right is identified on the back as Newton Becklis.  I have no further information on Alec Smith, but with research have come to the conclusion that “Newton Becklis” was most probably Isaac Newton Bakeless, who is on the Reno censuses for 1910, 1920, and 1930. Edward Allen was born in Ohio in 1861, son of Washington and Mary (McConkey) Allen, and died in Modesto, California in 1934.
