Regarding the last two pictures, we are not certain who the older woman is. At first I thought this might be Mary Ruth Hughes' mother (Martha Bella (Nichols) Hughes), but I believe that she died around 1910 - though I do not yet have proof of that. I believe that these photos were probably taken somewhere around 1920, so she would would have been deceased by then. I currently think that the woman in the two photos is Mary (Bair) Bailey, who was the aunt who raised Kenneth Bair and also James Bair after Mary Ruth (Hughes) Bair died. These photos came from Kate Bailey's photo album, and Mary Bailey is Kate's mother. There is no indication on the photos who this person is, so we may never know for sure.
