James Perry Pierce Family

Album 4, Pt. 1 0059 Left to Right: James Perry Pierce, son Ira, daughter Florence, and probably step-daughter Berna, apparently mourning the person in the photo on the easel c. 1900. Berna wears an inappropriate white dress for a funeral, though, so maybe it is at the 1898 wedding of James and Ella Cox.
