Detail from Previous Photograph.

[Note: Wanda Maness questions the identity of this family as that of Jess Franklin Moore. The youngest child might be Elijah Winston Moore, but who are the two girls who appear to be daughters? Surviving letters(1920s or later) from Marian Moore to Ester Tillman do not mention children of this age. Known children from eldest to youngest are Elijah Winston, Ara Lee, and Royce. Could they be two daughters who died? After Royce was killed in an accident and Winston was declared missing and presumed dead in World War II, Marion never mentioned them again.]
