Comment: Based on the estimated age of some of the children, this picture of the house and family is thought to be about 1903. The verso contains identification of the people by an unknown hand. These identifications are in some cases difficult to read:
1. Lottie [Swezey]; 2. Wallace [Swezey]; 3. Emma [Swezey]; 4. Fred [Fred DeWitt Swezey]; 5. Addie [Demange Swezey]; 6. Unidentified, perhaps a boarder; 7. Leila [Swezey]; 8. Lottie Meyer (or "Dreyer"), perhaps a boarder; 9. Unidentified boy; 10. Celestine [Swezey]; 11. Flora? [Swezey], or perhaps "Mrs. Borger"; 12. Unidentified boy.
