Alexander Williams is on far right with hat on. In front left, the little blond is Elizabeth Augusta Williams Houghtling, second wife of Spencer Houghtling. Lottie, Bessie and boys are in the picture as well, but Dawn isn't sure who is who. She thinks that the dark haired girl next to Elizabeth is Bessie Rose Williams Face. The tall girl might be Lottie.
