1900 to 1910. It shows my great grandmother Olive Puckett Day (1842-1922) pictured with her 5 living children. She is buried in Young Cemetery east of Grand River along with her husband Daniel Rufus Day (1939-1889) and 2 children Daisey Maude (1877-1892) and Midge Olive (1884-1894). The children pictured are: L-R Back Row Mary Bessie Day Overholtzer (1874-1966) Buried in Grand River Cemetery; Earl Glenwood Day (1887-1972) Buried in Munyon Cemetery north of Grand River; Catherine "Kate" Lillin Day Shields (1872-1931) buried in Grand River Cemetery; Front Row My grandfather William Bird Day (1869-1961) Buried in Grand River Cemetery; Great Grandmother Olive Puckett Day (see above) and Daniel Warren Day (1881-1969) Buried in Grand River Cemetery. There were 3 older children that were born before my grandfather and did not live very long. I believe they are buried outside of Kansas City, Mo.

The other ladies and the occasion for this picture are pretty much a mystery. Can you shed a light on who these ladies were?
