George W. Hufford (b. 1846, page 249 in Hufford Family History) is shown surrounded by his family, including the family dog and Pete the parrot (sitting on top of the cage). From left are (1) George's son Robert (b. 1869); (2) Robert's wife Nettie ALLEN; (3) George, seated; (4) Robbie DEMPSEY, a child whom George and his wife raised; (5) Derussa May WINSTED (Mrs. Commodore Perry Hufford); (6) George's wife Mary OWENS (seated); and (7) George's son Commodore Perry Hufford (b. 1872).
There is a poster for President McKinley behind the family, attached to the house.
When was the photo taken? President McKinley was elected in 1896. George's son Comodore Perry Huford died in July 1898, in a drowning accident. Likely the photo was taken in 1896.
