McCormick group photo - date confirmation and clean up please
« on: Saturday 30 October 10 23:14 BST (UK) »
Hi there,

Still on my mission to identify photos and badly needing the expert help on RootsChat.  The photo in question have been in someones dark chest and never saw the light of day when there was family around who knew the people.  These have some identifcation written on them, but I think it was someones best guess by looking at the faces, because some of the guesses make no sense.  So I'm staring with dates to confirm at least that we are checking our tree for the right era.

I have this group photo that I think is labelled accurately 'the McCormicks'. If it is:
Mother, holding baby is Mary Ann Knox b.1861 in Ireland, married Robert McCormick b.1860
Children at the back between them R-L: Andrew Knox McCormick 1886, Euphemia Knox b.1882, Thomas McCormick b.1884.
baby Robert 1st died aged 2 1887
Next to her Father is Isabella Farquhar McCormick b.1888
Toddlers from right to left: Mary Jane McGovern McCormick, baby William Knox McCormick b.1898 D.1899, Mary Jane McGovern McCormick,Robert McCormick b.1897
2 more children were born later.  If this is the McCormick family (and the children gender order and ages do match) then this photo would have been taken between 1898-1899,

Does this add up looking at the clothes etc please?

If so this is one that I can tick off as identified – yeahhhhhhhhhh!
I'd also love to have them cleaned up or coloured please

thanks so much for all you help,
regards,

Spots removed and faces cleaned.  Also, a little colour.

Oh, Ma cara, your colour version is superb. Euphemia looks less stern and prettier in the colour you've chosen for her.

Thanks so much, it's absolutely beautiful.

Hi Jill, another of your lovely photos!

1897-1899 looks spot on...unless it's an actual black & white photo. If it's sepia the date is just about perfect for what we can see of the clothing. Did you scan in colour? :)
