Happy Birthday, Martha!

From somewhen early in the last century:

Absent Martha, I'm taking a swag at the others in the picture. Martha is the young lady on the right. On her right, the little one is Margaret, next to her is Clarence ('Tuffy').

The two boys in the back are Hans and Ralph ('Doc'). I'm not really sure which is which, but I suspect that Hans is the  rightmost most of the two. He always appeared to be the most 'sober' of the two, but the was the top joker amongst the boys.

My best guess for the young woman behind Martha is Grandma Evah, and that she would have been in her early 30s.

So, Martha, 104, Gladys 105, and Dad 98. Happy Birthday, Mom!!
