Woman on right in the back row listed as Lisa.

On the same census page Mary Ann is said to have had 10 children with 9 still living. We see five children on this photo.
Where are the others? Simple they were not born yet.
On this photo Marion can’t be there since she was born in 1910. The little girl instead is Gladys Marguerite born on July 25th, 1901. This would mean that the photo was taken late autumn 1902 since Gladys looks to be about one and a half years-old.
Arthur and Mary Ann had more children after.
