(Not-So-) Wordless Wednesday: Wolfe Girls with Mother and Grandparents

This is another picture sent to me by Mom's first cousin, Edith Carole.  The picture has their mothers, mutual grandmother, and mutual great-grandparents in it, and was taken about 1924 in Louisiana.

The gentleman in the back is my great-great-grandfather, Levi Marion Shelton (1863-1941).  Sarah Ann Spikes Shelton (1871-1935), his wife, is at the far left.  Next to her are three of her granddaughters:  my great aunts Neva Marie (always called Marie) Wolfe Ely (1912-1995) and Edith Elizabeth Wolfe Smith Murff Brown Gould Knox (1910-2006), and my maternal grandmother Sara Melzina Wolfe Guokas Archibald (1907-1997).  At the far right is my great-grandmother Addilee Tennessee Shelton Wolfe Odom Harris (1890-1977).

Marie looks to be about 12 here, so I'm guessing the photo was taken about 1924.  Edith would be 14 and Sara about 17.
