Photograph of Young Girl identified as Rae Horne; by York, Pennsylvania Studio

Photograph of a young girl identified on reverse as Rae Horne.  The photograph was taken by the Bell studio of York, Pennsylvania.  The identification is written in faint pencil at very top of reverse.

Researching online has proved futile so far in further identifying this girl.  It's possible that Rae was her middle name and shown only as R or not at all on Census enumerations.  

Interestingly, though, this photograph came with a collection of photographs of people from Iowa and surrounding states, plus a photograph of Robert Cabeen Bair of York, Pennsylvania.  He was married to Ella Nora Smyser, daughter of noted Dr. Henry Lanius Smyser.  Is it possible that Rae somehow ties into this combined family?  Just in case, here's a link to the post about Robert Cabeen Bair
