Brock Photo Mystery

This photo is of my Brock/Raborn/Raburn/Rayburn family. The young boy standing is my great-grandfather, Patrick "Pat" Henry Brock. The young woman standing is supposed to be his mother, Irene Matilda (Raborn/Raburn/Rayburn) Brock. Myself and other family members believe that it is true. The girl sitting on the elderly woman’s lap most likely is Patrick’s sister, Sarah, and the one standing, his sister Nellie. The man sitting and the elderly woman are the ones I need to put a name to. It is possible that the man is Patrick’s father, Francis Marion Brock. The older woman could be a grandmother perhaps. That would make her Irena [Ammons] Brock or Rebecca [Rue] Raborn/Raburn/Rayburn. Patrick was born in 1884, which would date the photo to around 1890 to 1895 perhaps. I have this photo on my site under 'Mystery Photos'. I would love to know if that is Francis "Frank" Marion Brock. If there are any cousins out there, I would love hearing from you!

The photo originally had 2 corners missing. It was digitally repaired by Richard Spencer.
