Floyd Marion Robinson familiy

I'm going out on a limb here and say that this is a picture of Floyd Marion Robinson with his first wife, Lucy Tecusia Grady, and their children.    Lucy died in 1906, and it seems that the children pictured here would be their daughters, Carrie Charlotte and Clela Tecusah, who were the oldest two children (three previous children died as infants) born to Floyd and Lucy, along with their younger brothers Guyle Juston and George Samuel.   Another son, Ralph, would have been born after this photograph was taken. Now just who is who, I couldn't say, but would love for someone to confirm or correct my assumptions.  

Lucy was the daughter of Samuel Grady and Tecusia Smith.

After Lucy's death, Floyd remarried to Hattie Spearman, but the ages and gender of their children don't correspond with those in the picture.   Plus, the photograph appears to have been made in the early 1900's decade.

If you missed it, click here for an earlier post from last week that included a picture of some of Floyd's other children.

Below is a photograph of Hattie Spearman Robinson with one of her children, but unfortunately the identity of the baby was not known to Uncle Lawson Robinson who was the one who identified most of the old pictures in his mother's trunk sometime before his death in 1971.   His sprawling handwriting is across the back of many of the photographs.   Wasn't Hattie a beautiful woman?
