Berry - What heading do you want here?

Per Barry Fox, while cleaning out my wife's grandmother's house after her death, we discovered many family treasures. Among those treasures were quite a few Sprague family photos. My wife's grandfather, John David "Jack" Carter, was a grandson of Elisha Davis Sprague and Catherine Waples. Two of "Granddad Jack's" sisters were interested in preserving the family history, and as a result had written detailed notes on many of the items and photos. Neither of them had children, so at their deaths the items went to their brother, Granddad Jack. Now they have been passed to another generation. I would also like to preserve the family history for future generations, but to do that I need some help. While some of the Sprague pictures were labled, others were not. If anyone can help identify any of these photos, please contact me, Barry Fox at bfox(at)charter(dot)net. These are only a few of the pictures I will be happy to share with other descendants of Elisha Davis Sprague.

This particular photo has the date June 3, 1934 written on the back. The house in the background appears to be the homestead of Elisha Davis Sprague outside of Fairfield, IL (I have a full picture of the house before and after it was remodeled in 1940). I am especially interested in who the oldest lady might be. I assume it was some kind of Sprague reunion. I other pictures of this same gathering with many more people, so I am also making the assumption that this smaller group is the direct family of this older lady. Other pictures show only her and the gentleman seated next to her, so he is probably her son.
