ca. 1903 Delta Beta Sigma Sorority Tennessee

This photograph of the Delta Beta Sigma Sorority was taken about 1903.  Marion Moran, who is on the back row, second from the right would've been at least 16 or 17 years old when the photograph was taken.  I base that on the fact that she married Charles Henry Cobb of Union City Tennessee in 1905 and would've been out of school.   In addition, Delta Beta Sigma is a high school sorority that was founded in 1903 in Columbia Tennessee.

The names of the girls are listed on the back of the photograph.  I'm assuming the first girl is on the back row going left to right because Marion Moran is listed fifth and she is the fifth girl in that row.  I have no idea if girl seven begins on the left or right of the front row.
