The girl in the back on the left seems to be added by pasting her image behind others. There were 11 children, and I need to figure out who is missing from this picture. It appears that perhaps a couple of older children were missing, as there was a string of three girls in the middle of the string of children, followed by two boys at the end, and this picture shows two young boys. I am guessing that this was taken in the early 1870's. The oldest boy Jesse may have died young, and the next oldest Thomas Alexander moved out to Colorado, so I think this shows all children but those two oldest boys. The 1870 census household is consistent with this.
