The Photographer is I.W. Powell from Kankakee, ILL
These on the diagonal photos were taken between 1895 and 1905. This one is probably from around 1895…because of the big sleeves that are almost in the photo and the hair comb or peineta which was a decorative carved comb.

Thanks for stopping by. Do come again.
Update from Jacqi:
A possible lead.
I did find a James J. Hays living in Kankakee, Illinois--living in the town of Bourbonnais. He was married to Adelia D. Hays. At the point of the 1900 census, they were in their mid forties.
