That is Thomas. There is only one picture of Willie, Sherman's very favorite, and it's a post-mortem one. Might be found on Find-A-Grave? Willie's death created a permanent problem in Sherman's marriage, too - both parents blamed themselves for his death and never did forgive themselves for it. Thomas then became the son Sherman settled all his hopes and future dreams on, but Thomas had his own hopes! Sherman was severely disappointed when he chose to become a priest. They were estranged for years then Thomas, like his father, had a mental breakdown. After that they became closer and reconciled.
