My great grandfather's family was fairly well-off, so we have lots of pictures of them. They lived in Grand Rapids for six months in 1891-1892, so I can date this photograph to this short timespan.

John Hand Ransom and Emma Olive (Ransom) Harris.

John was born in 1875 and died in 1907 from tuberculosis of the lungs, leaving behind four daughters, the oldest of whom was only eight-years-old.

Emma was born in 1877 and died in 1964. She was the mother of nine children. In 1903, she received a gold medal for having the best butter in Michigan.
