Turner/McQuown/Elder, 1900 OH<CA

It's a big get-together, for sure.
Here's my grandmother [Wanda Ione Turner], with her mother [Cora McQuown], father [Carl Robert Turner], grandpa [Dr. Robert Turner], and grandma [Alexandra Blackman]. Spaced betwixt the group are her Uncle Robert Turner, and Aunts Della and Alta. I suspect the spouses of Della and Alta are there also, but my only surviving relative of that era can't identify their faces.
It's a good photo of a large collection of people dating about 1908 in Ohio .... Sandusky, I presume, as this was the origin of my g-grandparents before their migration to Riverside, CA.

Any Turner relatives out there? My G-Grandpa Turner died from TB in 1919 and I think there were no OH communications since Cora [McQuown] remarried D.S. Elder in CA.

It appears to be taken in a park (or large estate) involving about 70 people posed for the photo; an awesome 4-generation background shot for anyone's geneaolgy report.
I'll be glad to forward the photo via "attachment" to anyone who wishes to view faces and dress. -Or- if there is a site where a photo such as this can be openly displayed, I would appreciate the direction.
