On the advice of this list, I paid just $60 (a bargain) to Maureen, the
photo detective, to analyze a similar situation.

I had a tintype of a man with a fiddle, and I believed that I had been told
that it was John Jasper Campbell, born 1838 MO. However, his son James Boyd
Campbell, b 1871, also played the fiddle, and I wanted some professional
dating to help me nail the photo. I submitted the original photo to Maureen,
along with later photos of each of the two gentlemen in question, and her
methods were able to determine that it was the father. And I have her
well-written and concise summary to file with the photo.

Just a thought.

My guess would be that they are mother and daughter. I think you are
going to have to determine when the photos were taken by the style of
the women's clothing and then do some math using the birthdates and
possible ages. It sounds like a fun challenge! Is the name of the
photographer on the back of the photos? The years that he was in
business might help too.

Good luck!
