Based on another photo I have of her, I think that "Grandmother Hunter" is Mary (Freeland) Hunter, Percy's mother. Perhaps Percy's father, James Hunter, is taking the photograph. (Percy's Grandmother Hunter, Catherine (Carr) Hunter, died in 1891.)
"Grandmother Freeland" is Percy's maternal grandmother Nancy (Rainey) Freeland. Unfortunately, I don't know who Mrs. Wolf and Lottie Wolf are. Update 9/28/2013: In doing research for a Surname Saturday post for the Freeland line, I think I have determined that Mrs. Wolf is sister-in-law to Nancy (Rainey) Freeland; in other words, Mrs. Wolf is Mary (Freeland) Wolf, sister of James Freeland. And Lottie Wolf is a cousin of Mary (Freeland) Hunter.
Aunt Claude is Percy's mother's sister, Claudine Freeland, a longtime schoolteacher in Allegheny.
I think that "Mother" and "Dad" are Marguerite and Percy, based on the many photographs I have of them.

Front row: Grandmother Hunter, Grandmother Freeland, Mrs. Wolf, Aunt Claude Freeland, Lottie Wolf
|On the back, in my grandmother's handwriting: Greatgrandmother Freeland / Greatgrandmother Hunter|
However, based on the facts that:
Mary Freeland Hunter's mother, Nancy (Rainey) Freeland, lived from circa 1813 - circa 1904;
James Hunter's mother, Catherine (Carr) Hunter, lived from 1816 - June 1, 1891;
and the identification of the group members in the two photos above, I theorize that this is a photo of Mrs. Wolf and Nancy (Rainey) Freeland, Mary (Freeland) Hunter's mother.
My descent from Catherine Carr > James Hunter > Percy Earle Hunter > Helen Lysle Hunter > My mother > me.
