The elder woman in the center is my ggm, Neche ENGELSON-WELLER, widow of Shimon WELLER. She became a rag monger after her husband died abt. 1904 in a grain mill accident.

Does anyone recognize or know the names of any of the others in the photo? Or does the photo suggest any other clues I can follow up on?

Looking at the picture I would say the man on your great grandmothers right side is her son in law, and the lady holding the baby is her daughter, they look alike because she has a wedding ring on. They got married very young in those days sometimes age 13 or 14 . The children are her grandchildren , not children.
