I am guessing that this photo was taken sometime shortly after 1898, because the baby, George Lee Brandon, was born January, 1898.On Horseback, from left to right is: Will [?] Elmore , [have to check with my aunt on Will]; next is John Butler Elmore ; then Gideon Rufus Elmore .Seated are Ida Lucinda Elmore Brandon , with her son George Lee Brandon on her lap; James Jackson 'Jack' Elmore [boy]; Julia Ann Byars Elmore Newsom , [mother of all these Elmores]; her second husband Obediah Sterling Newsom ; Dicie Elmore Newsom ; and Dicie's husband Ezra Newsom [son of O.S. Newsom and his second wife.This photo was taken in the Finch community, in Greene County, Arkansas. O.S. Newsom gave the land for Finch cemetery , and his farm was located very nearby. O.S. Newsom was a Confederate veteran, he is shown at the link below in a 1899 reunion photo, 2d row, 4th from the left.
