The Reprint of A History. We have been contacted by a descendant of the family on page 71 labelled “Three generations of the Axtells of The Black Horse, 1878”, which apparently identifies John Axtell at the top, with two other generations below.  However, this John Axtell definitely died in 1874 before the two children of Charles Edwin Axtell, who are in this picture, were born.  We’re pretty sure that the date of 1878 is about right but cannot put a name to the gentleman at the top.  Does anyone out there have any further information?  Where did Hamish Eaton get this photo from?
