A Party for the Birthday Girl

From the Don Jackson Collection at LLF Library.
"Seven children are at a table and there is a birthday cake for one of the little girls. This photo was made for a Mrs Francis. Scanned from the original photo." -- Library caption.

On closer inspection, the cake has four blown-out candles.  I am terrible at guessing ages, but that would most likely make the honoree 3, going on 4, with the last candle representing the "one to grow on." 

On magnification, the party favors appear to include a roll of Lifesavers and a latex balloon, in what appears to be a paper cupcake holder.

I think I see scruffy saddle oxfords on the little boy on the left.  Given the children's clothing or lack thereof,  I'm going out on a limb here (insert tongue firmly in cheek) and aver that this photo was taken in the summer of the mid 1950s, when it was Mississippi HOT HOT HOT.

Anyone recognize these adorable children?  If so, please advise either here or on my FB page.
