The Brashear family lived in New Market, Maryland. Thomas and wife Ann Maria Pitts had 5 daughters and 2 sons. This photo was made around 1850, after Ann Maria had already died. The boy on the left (dark hair) is Thomas Pitts Brashear. The boy on the right is Charles Hall Brashear. Elizabeth Brashear, an older daughter, is probably on the right in front of Charles. There are only 4 girls in this photo and no one can put names to the girls faces with certainty nor tell which girl is missing from this picture.
