PHOTO ALBUM - WHO ARE WE?

I received an old photo album with cabinet card photos from a good friend who said they were in her families belongings for some time and she nor any living relatives knew who they might be. All were taken in Delaware County, mostly Margaretville, Andes area. None have names of the people on them. In the hopes that someone might recognize some of them, I would like to share them here.

July 1, 2015 - There may be a clue in the photo marked on the back "Sophia Miller Elliot, Andes, NY". This may have been the person in the photo or the customers name. There were Millers' and Elliots' living in Andes as well as Margaretville. --Roger Davis

ONE PHOTO IDENTIFIED

I can identify the four young women. The lady in the second row, on the right, is my grandmother, Mary Ann King Raitt, daughter of John Gibson King and Isabel Cowan King. Beside her in the second row is her sister, Isabel, and in the front is Christina Georgia – they are twins. I believe the lady on the far left in the back row is another sister, Helen Marie. These King sisters grew up in Andes and I would think the photo would date to the early 1900s. See attached photo as a comparison – front row; Helen and Georgia. back row; Isabel and Mary Ann. --Jeanne Raitt Flye, July 10, 2015
