The blushing brothers are George and James Harris.  Who’s who is uncertain.  They were very close in age, born just two years apart; James on January 10, 1872 and George on March 10, 1874.  On George’s WWI draft card, he’s said to have black hair and brown eyes.  I wasn’t able to locate a card for James.

Found along with this image was a cabinet card photo of the boys’ younger sister, Nora Belle, born in 1877.  At age 18, she married William Mathison and they had 10 children.

The siblings were born and raised in Cheatham County, Tennessee.  As adults, they lived in Nashville.
