Circa 1912-13 photo of mom, John & Bertha Pfister

I purchased the subject RPPC (Real Photo Postcard) (not postally used), depicting a young man, a young woman, and an older woman (plus a dog) sitting together in a living room. It is identified on the back:

"Mom, John & Bertha
Pfister in living
15 Davis St S. R.
about 1912 or 1913"

I found what may be this family listed in the 1880 Census data for Santa Rosa, Sonoma Co., CA. If so, John Pfister, born about 1864 in CA, and Bertha Pfister, born about 1877, were brother and sister. Their mother, Mary Pfister (maiden name Moyer), was born about 1837 in PA. The only problem with this possible match is that all three individuals in the photo appear to be a little too young for the assigned year.

Contact me if you wish to view and/or acquire this photo.
