Photo was taken outside their home in Mt Pleasant. Since their father (Edward) was the baker for the State Hospital for the Insane in Mt Pleasant, they lived on the premises. The house has since burnt down, but was located on Deer Path Circle (current street name - I believe is/was call Asylum Lane/Circle at one point).

Salem Weekly NewsSalem Weekly News, c. 1908

In the 1910 Salem Town, Henry Co. IA., Census, Mae Kerr is employed as a "typesetter in a news office". Her daughter, Ethelyn (KERR) BUESING, thought she was told the pic was taken in 1908.

Mae may not be in the picture, but the photo was "well kept". (I see that on a table to the left, the photographer has just set down her gloves to work the camera. I love seeing that!)

In the same census, Mahlon is working as "a salesman in a grocery store."

There is no photographer's name stamped anywhere on this photo.

It is believed that the older man's name is Grandpa Kirkpatrick, with his son, Mark, and Mark's wife, Anna.
