Written on back: "Susan Virginia Fitts and Sarah Harris Fitts, daughters of James Harris Fitts and Rebecca Emily (Alston) Fitts. Susan Virginia born 1832, m. Lucian Van Buren Martin; Sarah Harris d. of ruptured appendix, 1835, Faunsdale near Union Town, Alabama."

The age of girls in the picture dose not match the date written on the back. Search in ancestry showed that James Harris Fitts and Rebecca Emily Fitts didn't have daughter named Sarah Harris Fitts.
