Great photo of how little boys were dressed in the late 1800s!

ANDREW & ARTHUR FORD, Thomas Ford’s children (This is written on back of photo). If correctly identified, these may be the sons of the Thomas Ford who immigrated from England/Ireland in 1872, and married Artemecia Davis. They were living in the Town of Colchester in 1900, and Arthur was 9 years old (Born June 1891). From Pepacton Reservoir removals, Andrew J. Ford was born in 1892 and died in 1898. Photo was taken by Bruce photography, Andes, NY. The children’s mother, died at age 77, 12 Dec 1933, at the home of her son, Arthur Ford of Endicott, NY. Photo is from the collection of Eudora Shaver Bramley. I am wondering why she would have had this photo. They are not "family", but probably neighbors or attended the same church? Any information would be appreciated. Will gladly send the original to any descendants.
