Two different photos from two different sources

Years ago I received a photo of a man and a girl in front of a barn.  I was pretty sure the man was George Morris, who was the proprietor of the St. Charles Hotel from about World War I through the 1920s.  But I didn't have a clue who the girl was.  I assumed she was Mr. Morris' daughter.  This week a friend brought by another image, taken by a different photographer.  It shows the same girl in front of the same barn.  This time, though, the photo was marked on front and back "Tillie," and dated 1916.  I'm guessing the girl was Tillie Morris.  If you can help solve this mystery, please let me know in the comments below.   I think it's interesting that the photos came from two different sources yet are so similar.

This photo entered my collection years ago; I could identify
the man, but the woman was a mystery.
