Agree with Carol's dating. The 2 girls have a late kick-up/early gigot sleeve so I would suggest 1892-4.
This would make the youngest around 16 which looks about right.
I notice mom was born 1844 so maybe a 50th. birthday or an anniversary photo.

Thank you all...

I've just noticed that the eldest son, sitting on the right is the only one to be wearing a button hole. And also, any significance in having a stick as a prop for him to hold?? He married in 1896. Could this be a group shot before the he gets married?

Might the family portrait have been for the parents' Silver Wedding anniversary?
I noticed the young man's button-hole.

The cane isn't a prop. He may have a leg/foot problem. I also notice he's wearing a white tie which is reserved for formal occasions.
