"I hope you dont mind my sending all of these photo's to you. They were in my grandmothers album - she was Carrie Parsons and these are her relatives - the only one I can identify is James G who was in Ashtabula Ohio and whose family we were in contact with. My grandmother was daughter of William of Callowhill, Ballinamore, Co Leitrim, Ireland - her ancestry is on Ray Parsons homepage. Any help in identifying any of the people photographed would be absolutely marvellous.  
Thank you.  
Yours, Joan McKenna"
No, we don't mind, Joan. We are thrilled!
