Sitting from left to right are: Mary Margaret Burke (1890-1949) who was the daughter of John Joseph Burke and Nora M. Finn and she is holding a doll; Margaret Kane (c1846-1912) who was the wife of William Burke, Mary Ellen Burke (1870-1957) who is the sister of John Joseph Burke and the daughter of William Burke and Margaret Kane. This photograph was found unmounted, unlabeled and undated in a photo album belonging to Josephine Veronica Burke (1907-1995). The photograph was probably taken around 1895 when Mary Margaret Burke was 5 years old or less and it would have been at 28 Atlantic Avenue, Jersey City, Hudson County, New Jersey.
