The adults in the photo are Ellen and Andrew Ayers. We believe the children, from left left to right, are:
- John, aka
- Mary Jane
Missing from the photo are the two youngest children, Ernest and Mamie, who were born later. The order is almost, but not quite, from youngest to oldest. Nancy was the oldest daughter, but we believe that Mary Jane is the dark-haired girl standing next to Frank and that Nancy is the taller girl standing with legs crossed near the center. Henry was the oldest son, and he is recognizable as the boy standing behind the others.
