Oh, Silas...

My 93 year old Aunt-in-Law Kitty Pruden passed away last month and my cousin was able to scour through her photos, of which there were many. It was actually through Kitty how I got the first picture of my paternal grandfather:


That's a peculiar photo because he looks so much like my own father that many people often think they are the same person, just older/younger:



You can imagine my surprise, then, when my cousin mailed me the photo below. Scrawled on the back were the words, "1870s, Silas Pruden". I am related to a Silas Pruden, but is one of these guys Silas??? And what were they doing? Was it a posse? Was it a secret club? The mystery continues...
