Sarah (b: 10/6/1900) is in lower right. Taube is top center. Etta (b: 4/5/1893) is probably at top right.
The other woman and two children might be the sister Anna and her 2 kids.

Rose and Becky ca 1908

Rebecca Nelson and Rose Filler Siegel Chandler circa 1908. Family lore has it that they came to America together posing as sisters.
On that manifest for Rose: Cymric, Arrival Boston: 17 Jun 1906; Departure: Liverpool, England (8 June 1906) you can also find Lou Kates’ mother Esther (Rebecca's sister) and son Isaac, as well as Rose’s sister Anna/Hannah. Esther and Anna, but not Rose, are marked as coming from Volnia. I have been trying to find subsequent appearances of Anna/Hannah and her husband Mordechai Lichtenberg (name from Chandler tree) in the US, and have failed. It remains possible that she who is identified as Anna Filler is, in fact, Becky Nelson.
