RE: Nancy's photo: 

JOSIAH ELDER, with 1st wife EMILY TROMBLEY ELDER and her children, abt 1886.      Josiah ELDER obit

Dundee Monroe Co Michigan - Plat Map 1876   (see bottom left corner of map)
  Emily is the daughter of Moses TROMBLEY and Edesse DROUILLARD,                            
   married 26 JAN 1847 St Antoine's Church, Monroe Co, Michigan.
   Emily was born 14 DEC 1847, Monroe Co, MI (Petersburg?)                                                     
Photo owned by Nancy Elder Harris, Petersburg, Monroe County, MI
Scanned by Nancy Elder Petersen, Vancouver, Clark County, WA, October 2001.                  Identification:
My notes say that Emily died in 1889.
Her 5th child was Edward, b. 1886.
So if this photo is 1886, that would be Mother Emily!
The boy on the right sure looks like
our grandfather Martin, b. 1877, so he would be age 9.
Then Ellen, b. 1884, age 2
Alfred, b. 1872, age 14.
Mary Ada, b. 1869, age 17.
