I recently purchased some old pictures in Iowa; one of them is of a woman and on the back of the picture it says:
Madame Ellen Beach Yaw
Sept 14, 1869--Sept 9, 1947
There is also a quick little message written on the front of the picture from a man, possibly Allen, but I'm not able to read it clearly.
If anyone knows who this woman is I will gladly send you a copy of the picture.
