What a beautiful photo! I was so surprised to see the name George King as I have been working on the family of Harriett King Cox.  Her father which I am still working on was named Phillip King. Harriett married James Thomas Cox I that they names George King Cox and he has had a son that he named George Phillip Cox.

These Kings were originally from England then into the US.  I will let you know if  they hook up with your family.

Hoowee! What a dress! Buttons at the top and bottom. (Reminds me of having to work all those buttons on that dang cassock they make me wear.) Your Archie was born the same year as my Grandpa.

The shoes Temperance is wearing remind me of a pic of my Grandma, same shoes.

Cool pic, Janice!

This is a beautiful family photo.  I don't think I have ever seen a dress quite like what mom is wearing.  All three of the children are dressed very nicely, and the older girl's hair is very cute.

Dad looks like he is just there for the picture.

Thanks for sharing this picture.
