Friday's Photo: Is this a Bryan, Albritton, McNeil, or Wylie Descendant?

My second cousin Jane is sorting family photos and came across this one. Jane and I share the same great-grandparents, Terrell Bryan and Harriet Albritton - both born in Georgia, raised in Bienville Parish, Louisiana, and raised their family in Erath County, Texas. Jane is a descendant of Terrell and Harriet's daughter, Dorothy Elizabeth Harriet Bryan and her husband Thomas S. Wylie. Tom Wylie, born in Tishomingo, Mississippi, was the son of Samuel Kelso Wylie and Mariah McNeil. Tom Wylie had numerous siblings who lived along with his family in Erath County.

Could this blue-eyed beauty be a niece of Terrell and Harriet, living in Northwest Louisiana? Or maybe a niece of Tom Wylie living in Erath County?  I haven't been able to date the photo, but wonder if it could possibly be Jane's grandmother, Dorothy Elizabeth Harriet Bryan. 

If you can identify this young woman, I would love to hear from you!
