All but one family are living in Lawrence county from 1900-1930. Esther Newland appears to be daughter of Malcolm and Florence Newland.

The Magerleins were of Spencer and the photo of the man with the horse I think is same as Jack.

John and Lottie (Charlotte) are his parents on the porch.

I include a couple of census records on the Magerlein and the Newland families for your information.

There may be a connection between the Magerlein family and the Newland family.

I find Esther in the household of Malcolm (Mack) & Florence and later Esther married Albert Kruchton and her mother is found in the household with her and her husband.

I hope this info assists you. I cannot fix time on Dick and Bill Morris of Spencer.

I cannot find the Mansenbergers in census records, but they must have been.

I feel that the unknowns all connect.

Here's more—looking closely I think man on beach fits one of the unknown couples. I don't know who Bill Knight is with Esther Newland, but must be connected and in Lawrence County as the others are.
