From Shirley Brook: I talked with my Aunt Carey C. Manire.

Mary Alvie Culpepper Schubert (1891 Macon, Georgia -1953 Houston, Harris, Texas), daughter of Eula and Warren Ebenezer Culpepper was the owner of the pictures. She had them enlarged and framed from a smaller picture.

Aunt Alvie always told Carey they were pictures of her parents. My Aunt Carey was raised by Alvie and Ed Schubert,and grew up knowing who the pictures were of.
.... Carey does not know when nor where the pictures were taken. She guesses about the turn of the century, since they died 1904 and 1907.10
