A 1914 Visit to the Copeland Relations in Indiana

On June 13, 1914 Pearl and Clarissa Copeland (sisters) and Anna Allen (cousin) departed from Montgomery County Kansas to Rockville, Parke County, Indiana. They traveled by train and visited their Copeland, Finney, and other relations. They visited old farm sites, the homes of their cousins and second and third cousins, and many others.

I have 2 photos from that period and am trying to identify the people in them.

The elderly gentleman is John Copeland - brother to Abner Copeland (Pearl and Clarissa's father). Ladies marked 1 and 2 are - 1 Pearl Copeland and 2 Clarissa Copeland
In the 1914 diary, among the names mentioned are Crete Cory and Malinda De Baun. These would have been cousins of the Copeland girls - and descended from Ashcroft Copeland's son Andrew Jackson Copeland - a cousin of Abner Copeland.

If you can help, please let me know! Thank you!
