Mary L. Hatcher is 4th from the left, seated with her hand on her husband, James Henry Hatcher.
The woman standing at far right is Drusie (Hatcher) Lancaster, my grandmother.
I believe this photo was taken circa 1913/1914 because of other photos I have identified of Drusie
which are dated when she married S.J. Lancaster 14 Oct.1914 and that is exactly how she looked.
