Rushton and Schmachtenberger Photos Discovered

We went to visit my dad and Aunt “up north” in Michigan. They surprised me with these great family pictures. This one is the Rushton family in St. Thomas, Ontario, Canada, around 1900.

Cora Ann (b. 1876), Horace Holroyd (b. 1879), Bertha Estelle, my great-grandmother (b. 1881),
Eliza Jane Schmachtenberger Rushton (b. 1850), husband Hiram (b. 1853), and Blanche Winifred (b. 1883)

Here’s a mystery photo. The woman on the right is Eliza Schmachtenberger Rushton, but I am trying to identify the others. My guess is that the woman next to her is her sister, Sarah Slough, and the younger women are Sarah’s daughters, Esta and Gertrude. Hoping a descendant will be able to help me confirm that.
