Let's assume that the two young women in the family photo are generation two. This generation consisted of two daughters born 1882 and 1885, and a son born in 1883. The older daughter was married in 1901, the younger daughter in 1903. The first child of the older daughter was a boy born in 1902. The first child of the younger daughter was a girl born in 1905. I'm also going to assume that the child in this photo is the first child since others would probably be included if not. I can't personally tell if it's a boy or a girl...

If this photo were taken around 1904, for example, the girls would be 22 and 19. Their mother would be approximately 47. The gen 2 daughter born in 1885 lived to be 96 years old, hence the more modern photograph. In this case, one of the two young women would have to be her.

Bumping this to the top of the board - I'd love some more opinions!  :)

Looking at the two photos I think that they were different women. The women in the photo with the older woman (mother?) I think was taken at a later date. These women look more attractive than the women in the wedding photo.  :) Deb
