This is another photo from the collection of Marguerite Cook Clark and it is assumed to have been taken in or near Bienville Parish, Louisiana. It was labeled by Marguerite's mother, Maggie Cook. It is thought to have been labeled long after the photo was taken. The maiden names of all of the young women were included, but it is not known if they were married when the photo was taken. The clothing styles, especially the hats, lead me to believe the photo was taken around 1910. No later than 1915.
Ina Cook Bryan and Bert Cook were the daughters of N. B. and Pauline Porter Cook. Ina married Albert Brown Bryan.
