This picture was taken the year Peggy was born. Now we all know exactly what John Henderson Moorehead looked like and you can see Agnes in his face very clearly.  This is the man she idolized.

Agnes is the lovely young girl in the middle row with an A penciled on her.  She would have been 5 or 6 years old, depending on when they allowed her to start school.  Such a beautiful pensive child.
