Mother Harriett Hoffman, son William Rogers, daughter Harriett Rogers. I do not know which daughter the other girl is. Harriett is on the far right I believe.

I wanted to share this family photo of Harriett Rogers with the community. Location: Yolo, CA. Date: unknown.

So this is the entire photograph A handsome group of people. Again I love the era clothing. All of the ladies with a hat and something to cover their hands. In the second row are they wearing opera gloves? The gentleman with his hat off and wearing a pocket watch. None of them smiling is still adorable. I wsee these pictures and it makes me imagine back in that time and wonder of the stories they know of their family and hometown. Thanks for sharing the family portrait.. It is a pleasure to look.

Wow. You really look at the detail. I did not see the pocket watch. Don't know about the opera. The father was a preacher and teacher. He did start a school in CA. They seem like they are comparatively well off by the dress. I would have thought an itinerant preacher would be poor
Janice I didn't say they were rich now but beautiful clothes, Those gloves may have been given to her. I do not know the story and I will not elaborate on it. Whether with money or not, I like clothes from this era. Maybe I just got overly excited. Either way, a very nice picture :)
Thank you for selecting my answer. I just like old pictures and old stories.
