  2. IGGY, you might have already seen the same version of the portrait of Maria Louisa Booker at a Public Member Tree at ancestry? I am not a member at ancestry, so I could not go further.

    At the website 'Kentucky Kindred Genealogy' by Phyllis Brown there are some more infos and bios on the Booker family. According to the site Maria L. Booker married John W. Robinson on 22. May 1856.

    1. Susanna - many if not all of Craig's photos are posted in Ancestry. Craig began a "Family Tree" for many of them - in an attempt to find family. Many folks "copied" the photo posted there - I assume without telling/asking Craig. Maria Louisa Booker Robinson was definitely "high society" in Louisville, Kentucky. She had a large family and was widowed while still young. Both the family tree in Ancestry and the genealogy by Ms. Brown appear to be laced with errors. If time permits (doubtfully) I'll see if I can sort things out. I think the actual husband's name was John McHenry Robinson.

    2. Forgive the link - it goes to a page in a book showing Maria's house with some bio info.
