Pliney, Franklin & Lydi NORCROSS (of Ny, MA, & WI) photos 1895-1910

So I found 2 photos in an antique shop in Monterey Co., CA
The first one has the inscription of "Franklin and Lydia NORCROSS" ca 1895 on it. And, "Great Aunt & Uncle of E. N. M."
The picture is of finely dressed elderly couple. The photo studio is "Burch, Harvard, ILL"

The second photo is great! It is dated 1910 and shows 6 men and 1 woman sitting on a "balanced rock". On the back it says, "Lookout Mountain TENN.
March 1910
Pliney NORCROSS- Civil War Vet- Served with 13 Wisconsin Infantry 1862-65

I did some research on this family:
Franklin NORCROSS b ca 1812, MA
Lydia P. (wife of Franklin) b ca 1814, NY
son, Pliney/Pliny NORCROSS
born Nov 1838, MA
married 13 Apr 1874, Rock Co., Wisconsin
to Phoebe Akin POOLE
daughter of John H. POOLE and Elizabeth
Phoebe born Aug 1841, NY

Pliney and Phoebe had at least 3 children;
1)John Vanderpoole NORCROSS
b; 1868, m; Marion Cornclin RUGER on 21 Nov 1895 in Rock Co., WI
2) Elizabrth Leavitt NORCROSS
b; 31 Jan 1875, Janesville, Rock Co., WI, m; George Allen MASON on 15 Jun 1898, Rock Co., WI
3) Edward NORCROSS,
b; Feb 1878, WI

info from 1860, 1870, 1880, 1900 federal census, Wisconsin State census of 1885 & 1895, Wisconsin marriage records, Wisconsin Military Records, and Union Civil War military records.

These aren't my people! I'd like to get them back to their family. The two photos together cost $12.
