Essie & Earl

Photo of house is a picture taken by Dad on 4-16-1990 .
He wrote on back of picture that this is where they lived from about 1926 and 1927
The house is in White Springs.
It could be the same house in the photo below

Standing left is Ella (Granny), Essie & Earl standing center, and Rushie standing holding baby(Merle). This is possibly the only picture with Granny and Rushie and Earl(Dad) in the same picture.
Can you tell who the others are in these photos ?
Bottom picture looks to be circa 1926.

This house is different than the other photo above, but photo's appear to be taken minutes apart. ???
