Photo by Moses Gustin of Troy about 1870
Ada J. Ruggles, d. of Archibald Ruggles and his wife Mary (surname unknown), was born in Sullivan Township ca.1853. In 1876, she married Otis Robbins of Sullivan. I have scanned the photos in the Robbins family album, in which most or all photos are unlabeled, and there are photos which we may now be able to identify as Addie. Addie died 1933 in Sullivan and is buried at Glenwood in Troy. (SRGP 5670)

Ida Goodrich "Strait" was present in 1870 Columbia Township census as a 25 year old married woman. She is buried with husband Churchill Strait at Sylvania Cemetery. Date for Ida 15 Dec 1842  - May 9, 1904

Alice Evans was present in the1870 Sullivan Township census in the househld of her parents, John Evans and Mary (surname unknown.) She was born ca 1853. I have no additional information about her. (SRGP 74924)

I estimate the photo to have been taken in the late 1860s /early 1870s time frame based on the apparent age of the women. Were they friends or related, possibly cousins? Without knowing the surnames of the mothers of any of the three women and the father of one, we can't determine that. If anyone can help me with full identification, I'd appreciate it.
