Jo Desha Williams and Maxie Leah Meek married in 1885 and set up house in Russellville then, so the home was either built or purchased shortly after that.

The first photo of that home (picture 3) was dated Thanksgiving 1899. By then they had three living children out of four births. Picture 5 had to be around 1910/1912 I think, because they moved to Little Rock shortly after that. I have no idea of the date of the photo in the middle.

Grandma Maxie was not good about labeling her photos. They did have post cards made of the home that they used for correspondence for years afterward.
