One of my favorite "finds!"  The gentleman is most likely William (Guilliame) Veno, father of Benjamin Veno.  The two little girls would most likely be grandchildren.

Gertrude Coste, born  about 1820

Marie Therese was her great, great grandmother. 

Gertrude was also the first cousin, once removed, to Isadore DeCoste
