Mary on the far right, but I do not know who the others are
Mary (Oberdorf) Mook with Jacob Wellington Confer
Mary (Oberdorf) Mook with Sally Oberdorf
Mary Mook with Catherine, who was not related, but a live in help. I remember visiting Catherine when I was very young, and when she died, she left me everything (she did not own much) in her will. My mom was the executor. Catherine had a son in the mental institution, I remember hearing rumors that he was the result of incest, and he died while still young - around age 12 I think.
Mother of Freda Francis (Aikey) Confer, my grandmother. She married Paul Aikey, and after his death, married John Mook. She is buried beside Paul Aikey.
