The original photo shown  above, belonged to Sarah Ophelia Rose Barnes, who was married to Thomas Whitley Barnes. I’ve done a previous blog posting on Ophelia. She is second from the left, in the white dress. Standing next to her is her daughter-in-law, Sadie Elizabeth Fitzgerald Barnes, also in a white. Nancy Rose Barnes (1914-2006), called Rose by the family, is the young girl standing in front.  The two ladies on either side are unknown, but most likely were related.  Our Barnes family remembers being told that Sadie Fitzgerald Barnes had Native American ancestry, but we have never confirmed that.
