Daniel and Maria Henry (nee Hardy) with 9 of their children

Photo Details

This is a photo of my Great Great Grandparents Daniel and Maria Henry (nee Hardy), and 9 of their children. The couple had 16 children altogether. I'm not sure which children are in the photo. I'm told that my Great Grandmother, Mary Agnes, is the young lady in the back row on the left, but the one on the right looks most like her. The photo was taken in Attymass, County Mayo. I would love to hear from anyone who recognizes this photo and knows who the children are. Note: Some of the faces across the middle appear to be stretched due to the fact that the original had been folded and the crease distorted the copy image. The original was taken by O'Connor Bros Photography. Mary Agnes was about 16 when she emigrated to America around 1892, along with her sisters: Ellen Kate (Missie), about 18 yrs old, Henrietta, about 13 yrs old, and Annie, about 12 yrs old. I'm guessing the photo was taken around 1890
at Attymass, County Mayo, Ireland
