"Tom to Phelps" possibly written on back.

Does anyone else have this photograph?

Does anyone know the years the photographers were at that address?

Could they be children of Norman Phelps and Margaret (_____) SMITH?
Norman Phelps SMITH (known as "Phelps"), a farmer of West Gwillumbury, Simcoe Co Ontario, was born 25 Jan 1808 presumably in Thetford VT of Jethro and Hannah (FREEMAN) SMITH.

The children of Norman Phelps and Margaret (_____) SMITH were
* William SMITH who married Rebecca and inherited land in Plympton Co 26 Sep 1870 and was in Lambton Co, where Sarnia is, in 1871.
* Susanna and Mary SMITH (see below) and possibly Olive, Hannah and Jane SMITH.
* John SMITH (possibly), b. c1841 and a resident of Tecumsuh Ontario in 1871.
* Joseph Phelps SMITH, b. c1850, who m. Emma Jane TURNER 6 Oct 1870 in Tecumseth (Anglican) and inherited land in Plympton Co 26 Sep 1870 and was in Lambton Co, where Sarnia is, in 1871.

Susanna, born 6 Sep 1835 of Norman Phelps and Margaret (_____) SMITH, married Thomas G. GOODFELLOW of West Gwillumbury and immigrated to the U.S. in 1858. They lived in PA, NJ (1863), DE (1864-7) and then Brooklyn (1869-71) where Susanna died.

Thomas then settled in Chicago IL and married Mary SMITH, b. Jul 1838), who I think was Susanna's sister. Thomas GOODFELLOW was a carpenter who helped rebuild Chicago after the great fire.
