UNKNOWN THOMPSON OR REID PHOTOS

These photos belonged to Ruth Laverne Reid Pfeifer, daughter of James Madison Reid and Osta Emmer Thompson. I believe most of them to be of Thompson relatives, although they may be of some of the Reid relatives. I would welcome all help in identifying these photos!

Unknown #0 Photo taken at Woods Studio, Beatrice, Nebraska. I think the woman seated in this photo is the same as the woman in the chair below. I had hoped it might be Evalina Thompson Jones and her children, taken when they moved from Beatrice, Nebraska to Idaho about 1902, but a known photo of her oldest son Harry Thompson Jones does not match the oldest male in the photo. Susie Burke thinks (and I agree) the young man in this photo is the same as the man in #3, #6 & #8, with the last two including his wife.
Unknown #1 Photo taken at Summers, DeWitt, Nebraska. Woman in large chair looks to me like the same woman that is seated in Unknown #0. I had thought it was Mary, Evalina, Pluma and Osta Thompson, and it could be but not for sure.
Unknown #2Photo taken at the Elite Studio, 108 S. Fourth St., Beatrice, Nebraska. I have a note on the back that this studio was only in operation from 1909 to 1917 according to one source - where? I need to find it again! :o)
Unknown # 3No studio markings on folder. Probably same man as in photos 0, 6 & 8
Unknown # 4Photo taken at Gale Studio, Beatrice, Nebraska. See notes for #5 below. Written on pencil in front corner of photo is "Gale 1919".
Unknown # 5Photo taken at Rex Studio, Fairbury, Nebraska. To me it looks like it could be the same boys that are in photo #4, only older.
Unknown # 6Photo taken at Gale Studio, Beatrice, Nebraska. Probably same man as in photos 0, 3 & 8 with his wife.
Unknown # 7Photo that was made into a post card. Taken where? Post card markings on back are identical to Unknown #8.
Unknown # 8Photo that was made into a post card. Taken where? Post card markings on back are identical to Unknown #7. Man on right as you look at the photo is probably same man as in photos 0, 3 & 8 with his wife.
