Look at these family photos, I found this interesting

Do you think that is Julius Howell in my family photo ?

This man is Julius Howell and I listened to his audio-recording which was really cool but I looked at a family photo from my Great Great Grandmas family and he looked a little familiar. Notice the man that looks like the General was not labeled and this could be a crazy coincidence or is it ?

Really ? I didn't know that I have other German names in the older parts of the family like Huechelin if I spelled that right.
I know this photo was taken in 1925
This is my GG Grandmas info the one named Flrorence
BIRTH31 May 1914
Georgia, USA
DEATH1 Apr 1994 (aged 79)
Georgia, USA
BURIALForest Hills Cemetery
Chattanooga, Hamilton County, Tennessee

As for the others I have no idea the ones that are labeled, the females any way are her sisters I beleive based on a more modern photo below But the man is what gets me he looks so much like the General in that photo.

I don't expect to be related to Juluis Howell but that would be amazing even if it were a small connection but if not and that is him then I wonder how he crossed paths with my family.There is one Confederate soldier my 5th Great grandfather who was a private in the 1st GA infantry George O. Lombard. Other than that I have no clue.

if it is him (either that or a doppelgänger). he needs to be either a relative or a friend of the family

Here is Gertdudes full name below:
Husband: Mack Brackett
Father: Dr. Robert Bennett Cuthbert
Mother: Gertrude Augusta Lombard

The Lombard family had the soldier I mentioned in it.
Maybe this will help

Florence Henrietta Cuthbert Brackett (Great Great Grand Mother)
Gertrude Augusta Lombard Cuthbert (Great Great Great Grand Mother)
Roswell Oliver Lombard (Great Great Great Great Grandfather)
George O Lombard (GGGGG Grandfather) 1830-1870 The soldier
