Marcus Steward's Family
Original in possession of Estaline Darland
The Child in the front is Ruby, the two twins from left to right are
Ada and Addie, the rest from left to right are Jesse, Marcus, Matilda,
Lotta, and Elsie Steward.
Upon inspection, Marcus and Lotta Steward were not in the photograph.
My best estimate for the date of the photo is Spring of 1897. This
means Marcus would have been dead for about four years. Lotta would
have been married and most likely living in Mississippi. Ruby would
have been about four, the twins about ten, Jesse about fourteen, and
Elsie would have been about seventeen.
