Notes about this photograph
Date: Young Marie Twyford was born in 1900. In this photograph, held in her father's arms she seems to be less than three years old. This would date the photo as being between 1902 and 1903.
These children were most likely born between 1887 and 1897

Possibly in the photo but not known
