I recently recieved this picture from a distant cousin, Jerry Sanner. He believes that it was taken in 1909, and that the central seated figure may be my great grandmother, Estella Lucinda Randall.
He has tentatively identified the individuals as (L-R):
- Chris Johnston b. 1897 age 12, This would be the younger brother of my grandmother, Rosella Johnston, and the son of Estella and her first husband, Aaron C. Johnston.
- Reuben Hower b. 1858 age 50/52 (he d. in 1919), this would be Estella's second husband.
- Estella (Randall) [Johnson] Hower b. 1866 age 42 (she died in 1916), my great grandmother.
- Clarabelle (Johnston) Byzewski b. 1886 age 22, my grandmother's older sister.
- Margaret Hower b. 1906 age 2.5, my grandmother's young half-sister.
- Joseph Byzewski, husband to Clarabelle.
Any help verifying this photo would be greatly appreciated. The family lived in Minnesota.
