We found this photograph after my mother passed away. It has no identifying information and we are curious to find out who she is and if she is related, and if she is, how so. If anyone recognizes this beautiful lady or perhaps has a similar photograph or can in any way lend some help in identifying, we'd be most grateful.
There is no doubt in my mind, and the minds of several close Native American friends that the woman in this photograph is Native American.
My mother's maiden name was Davis, her mother's maiden name was Goodell and our ancestors are John and Priscilla (nee Mullins) Alden who came here on the Mayflower. My maiden name is Cristofaro.
This photograph may have been taken anywhere but our family lived mainly in Illinois.
I am attaching 2 copies of the same photo.
