  1. Such a fair-haired bunch. Why do you suppose Mom is not in the picture? The three girls in the photo with a baby and a Mom, look like the three in large family group, now Dad has a hat and a new baby. Let’s say Mom and Dad are born circa 1840, oldest daughter 1870-10 or 1860, next sister born 1862, third sister born 1867 and baby born 1870. That timeline might work. Now can we find a family among our bunch with four daughters around 1870?

    • Yes, these three photos definitely go together and were all taken on the same day. And I agree with your dates outlined above. The baby could be a boy or a girl. But I just can’t find a family that fits this description.
