Circa 1870s photos of Margaret & Hannah Foley, sisters of Joseph J. Foley

I purchased in Oakland, CA, undated matching tintypes of two young women. Black and white prints made from these tintypes, acquired at the same sale but found in a different box, are identified on their backs in blue ballpoint ink handwriting:

"Margaret Foley
sister of Jos. J. Foley"


Hannah Foley Desautelle
sister of Jos. Foley"

The only place I see all three given names is for a family listed in the 1870 and 1880 Census data for Fall River, Bristol Co., MA. Margaret Foley, born about 1853-55 in MA, and Hannah Foley, born about 1854-57 in MA (I don't find her under her married name), worked in a cotton mill. Joseph Foley was a younger brother, born about 1870 in MA. Their parents were Edward Foley, born about 1814-21 in Ireland, and Hannah (maiden name unknown), born about 1822-23 in Ireland.
