Friday's Photo: A Family Portrait

Phillip A. Hairston (1852 - 1917)
Johnnie Myrtlene "Myrtie Hairston (1880-1927)
Lodema Walker Criswell Hairston (1856-1919)

This photo of my grandmother, Myrtie Hairston, and her parents is about 120 years old.  She was born in 1880 and looks about 10 to 12 years old. At that time, the Hairston family would have lived in Erath County, Texas and I assume that this photo was taken in Stephenville, Erath County. One Criswell cousin has this same photo. I wonder if others exist.
