it has been a few years since I first posted this and still no answer
thought I'd have another try (since photo topics are 'in' this week)

If the child on the left is a boy and the next one is a girl, I think your guess of John, Myrtle, and Ivy would be best, BUT according to the dates on the link, John was 4 yrs 8 mos old when Ivy was born and Myrtle was 2 yrs 3 mos when Ivy was born, so she would be older than one. To me, the two children standing look closer in age, but most of the children are roughly two years apart. A couple of other ideas to consider: I know in my grandparents' time, boys sometimes wore clothes more similar to dresses until they were toilet-trained, so is it possible that those are two boys? Also, is there anything in the photo that gives a clue to the season it was taken? They are wearing long sleeves. There are leaves on the trees. Is that corn on the table in the foreground? Ivy was born in late September, so if she is the baby, the photo would have been taken in early October. I'm not sure if these questions really help, but best of luck!
