Families in Western North Carolina

Pioneers by their log cabin

There is an elderly couple (the woman is sitting), an adult woman, and a girl. The cabin appears to be whitewashed, and there is a stovepipe coming through the roof. There is a washtub in front of the cabin. Likely taken in North Dakota.
