This portrait was found in the belongings of Ruby (Ladd) Gooch, which she had received from her mother, Mamie Ladd, wife of Elno Boyd Ladd. This collection contains a wide range of Ladd-related pictures, many of them unidentified. That is the case with this picture. Using what is known from other pictures, these are the persons we believe are included here. Left to right, back row, are Edna Mura McIntosh, b 7 Dec 1885; James Ernest Ladd, b 23 Sept 1889; Essie May (Ladd) Thomas, b 25 Jan 1886. In the front are two more daughters of James Elkanah and Louella Fidella (Ladd) McIntosh: Georgia McIntosh, b 28 Mar 1896, and Alta Marie McIntosh, b 3 July 1901. Essie married John Barnett Thomas on 4 Jan 1905, and she is wearing a wedding band, which helps establish the earliest date for the picture. The apparent ages of the younger children indicate the picture was taken sometime not very long after then. 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.
