    Following "Annis Frost Keller" in a different hand is "Dietzen"

    Evelyn Rush identified the woman fifth from the left in the back row as Elizabeth Sibley.

    There is a copy of this photo in the WEM collection, too.

    Evelyn has identified several of the people in this photo. See locator. Can anyone identify others?

    In the right hand part of the mat in the original is the pencil notation "? John W. Frost & wife" with an arrow seemingly pointing to the young man on the end of the second row. Presumably these would be John Wilson Frost and his wife Sarah Jane Powell. Below that is the notation "next to wife ist Coral". That would be Coral E. Frost. Below that there is a trace of additional pencil notation, but it has been erased except for a few letters.

    In the bottom margin is the pencil notation, "3rd row boy, Lizzie, Eola, Mary, Nan, Father, Wilson, Mother,". That would be Elizabeth Ada, Eola Gertriude, Mary, Annis, William Henry, Halsey Wilson, and Annis Powell Frost.

      ANNIS (NAN) m. 1st PETER DIETZEN; m. 2nd FRED A. KELLER,* August 16, 1894; lived in Dunkirk and Fredonia.
      The order of her marriages given here does not match the order Evelyn has and doesn't seem plausible. She was 18 when she married Frederick. A little young to have been already married once already.

      WILLIAM HENRY m. ANNIS POWELL (b. June 30, 1845) of Schroon Lake, New York, December 24, 1863...
      This date is not what Evelyn has. See general citation for this marriage from the FFN Vol. 9 No. 1 p 2.

    4. [S9] Correspondence, eMail from Deborah Winograd, 19 Jun 2021.
      It looks like she divorced Fred Keller in Warren PA in 1921 but the writing isn't too clear & it could be 1924.
