Agnes Brown - This is thought to be a photo of Agnes Brown. Agnes's siblings included: Will L., Ida Mary, Spencer Elisha, Walter Norman (died at age 4 yrs) and Marion Alice (who went by Alice).  Her parents were Elisha Brown (b. 1817-08-20, Luzern, NY; d. 1893-08-25, Brant, NY) and Marion Eliza Hills (b. 1832-11-02, d. 1916-11-??, Versailles, NY).  Agnes was also Aunt to Marion Brown, who is my (Mardon Erbland's) mother.  The reference to "Nina" on the picture is to Alice (Marion Alice) Brown's daughter, Anirah Agnes Hayward, who went by the name "Nina".

Maude & Jessie - Maude Brown (nee Jeffrey) and her niece Jessie Hawley.  Written on the back of the paper frame that holds the original tintype photograph is "Maude & Jessie" and "Maude Jeffrey Brown and niece Jessie Hawley". The image seems blurred but that is consistent with the appearance of the original tintype.
