location of individuals:

It is assumed that this image shows the family of Anna Bernice Harting.

Anna Bernice Harting (Mrs. Joseph Granville Wells) is in the middle row at far right. She was the mother of IU President Herman B Wells. It is assumed that her parents are seated in the front row: Ida Belle Endicott (Mrs. George Hunt Harting) and George Hunt Harting.

Anna Bernice had eight other brothers and sisters and it is assumed that it is they that are pictured here (NOTE: one sister, Emma Branch Harting (born 12/28/1880), died when she was nearly eight-years-old on Nov. 12, 1888 and is obviously not pictured here). The names of her brothers and sisters were: Willie Bennett Harting (b. 4/3/1884), Harry Blaine Harting (b.5/31/1886), Rosa Beatrice Harting (b.8/15/1888), Clayton Bernard Harting (b.6/9/1890, d. 9/17 or 27/1917), Jennie Barnett Harting (b.2/23/1892), Earl Byron Harting (b.1/17/1894), and Aletha Bell Harting (b.2/2/1896).
