This picture is excerpted from one found in the belongings of Ruby (Ladd) Gooch, which she had received from her mother, Mamie Ladd, wife of Elno Boyd Ladd. Using what is known from other pictures, we believe these persons are James Ernest Ladd, b 23 Sept 1889, and Essie May Ladd, b 25 Jan 1886. Essie married John Barnett Thomas on 4 Jan 1905, and she is wearing a wedding band (visible in the original group photo, but not here), which establishes the earliest possible date for the picture. It is possible that this picture was taken when several family members were together for the wedding of Essie and John. We welcome further evidence documenting the identifies of the persons in this picture, but this is the best interpretation of all the data available to Forrest Ladd, Jr. at the time of compiling this update.
