Today I'm going the try a game. The missionaries in the photo below have recently arrived in Chattanooga Tennessee to start their mission. The mission secretary sent this photo. It is dated July 31st 1895. But the labeling for the photo is somewhat lacking. There is a list of people in the photo, and the names are numbered, but no legend matching the names to the faces. I have added letters A-Q to the photo. The full names and areas of service were fleshed out using other sources.
If we are lucky, a relative has posted a photo online against which we can compare these images. But it is harder than it sounds. I've been working on the Tennessee ones and so far nothing conclusive although I do have a couple of ideas.

Also in the photo, but who had not newly arrived to the mission were...
9. George Henry Horne working in the mission office
10. Prest. Elias S. Kimball who is the mission president
11. David C. Hubbard working in the mission office
Missing from the photo, but who arrived with the other missionaries are...
18. Adam Yancey of Chesterfield, Idaho assigned to Texas
19. Lamoni Tolman of Chesterfield, Idaho assigned to Texas
Since both went to Texas, I am guessing they had to leave before the photograph was taken. Extra credit for anyone who can find a photo of each of them. Bonus points for anyone who can find a photo of these two together.
I'll fill in one to get us started. I know, I took the easy one.
