What a great hobby - very kind of you.
It could be you have a photo of Margaret Freeland Foster (1887-1917) who is buried at Highland View Cemetery in Big Rapids. Her mother Julia Torrence Freeland (1855-1921), brother Thomas W. Freeland (1882-1956), and maternal grandmother Martha A. Torrence (1831-1910) are also buried at Highland View. (source: Find a Grave)
1910 US Census
Big Rapids, Mecosta County, Michigan
Julia Freeland 53
Thomas Freeland 29
Margaret Freeland 23
three more people also in the household...
Below is a link to contact information for a relative who was working on a family history. She mentions Thomas W. Freeland, who married Florence Darrah in Big Rapids in 1914. They had a daughter Margaret Freeland who married James Blanford.
In 1880 in Big Rapids a Julia A. Freeland age 24 and husband Charles C. Freeland 28 are living with her parents Chester and Martha Torrence.
I hope this helps a little, by adding some additional surnames to this thread that might create a "hit" if someone out there does an internet search for those names.
All best - a volunteer
