I have an original Cabinet Card photograph of “Laura and Mary Gilbert and Kitty Hurly”, which I’d like to get back to descendants or family members. Photo was taken in Milan (Sullivan Co.) MO and each of the girls looks to be about age 25 or so.

I found the family of Laura M. Gilbert in the 1880 census for Jackson (Sullivan Co.) MO, showing she and her sister Alice M. were daughters of George and Mary Gilbert. Laura was born abt 1873 and Alice M. abt 1867. In Ancestry Public Member Tree, Laura is shown as having married first Charles Pemberton Brooks, and next Ulysses Simpson Means. In 1910 census, Laura and Charles lived in Geary Co., KS, but by 1920 census Laura and Ulysses lived in Cochise Co., AZ with some of Laura’s children named Brooks.
