Taken about 1889;  “Buff” Wylie, Gary Porter, Sam Button.   (Note:   This would be Samuel Edward Button, the father of Nettie Belle Button (Shortridge) during the time of his War service.)

codding fam
The Codding Family.  The original photo was labeled on the back with: “Nettie's Grandparents, Mother Sarah and Minnie”   Thus, (left to right): George Bradley Codding, Elmira (Mould) Codding, Sarah Caroline Codding, and Minnie M. Codding.  The identification of Minnie (and perhaps Sarah) is questionable because the age of the girl in the photo doesn't seem to match the presumed age of Minnie when the photo would have been taken (circa late 1800-early 1900).
