This picture is of James Root and his wife, Harriet Ann Dickinson Root, and their children - Martha, Mary, Minnie, and Charles Franklin (known as Frank). Charles Franklin Root (bottom, right) is the father of Hope, Joy, Lee (Eulalie), Faith, and George. We think that Uncle Guy Dickinson (husband of Aunt Hope) is related to Harriet Ann, but have not yet connected them for sure. Any help appreciated here. Another note - Minnie Root later married George Wood, the son of James Wood, and brother of Nancy Merriam Wood (wife of Charles Franklin Root). It seems clear that the families were intertwined through the generations.
