Are these the same people? What do you think?

I put together two collages of both known and possible photos of my great-great-grandparents, John Henry Lett, Sr. and Margaret Ingram Rolfe Lett.  Take a look and let me know your thoughts, if you think all of the photos are of the same people or if they are different people, mixed up.  

After lots of studying, I tend to believe they are of the same people.  The photos span many years.  The time frame when each photo was taken fits chronologically.  The provenance of each photo fits perfectly, each photo has passed down through various descendants of the couple in question.  These are not random photos I found in a Cracker Barrel.  These are all photos owned by the family, we just do not know for sure who each one is.

What do you notice that is similar or different?

Are these all of John Henry Lett, Sr.?  The last three are known to be him, the first is in question.

Are these all of Maggie Rolfe Lett?  The third and fifth are known to be her, the fourth is highly likely to be her.
