The Mystery

Please help identify; I am curious about this photograph. Can anyone identify this James family. I know Jesse James used the name Howard as an alias but Howard appears to be the name of a child here.
I hope you can help me identify.

Jane was born in Forsythe Co, N.C., about 1836. Her father was Friedrich Spach, and her mother was Lucy Mass.
Jane was married to Frank James. They had 8 children, David, Samuel, Edward, Mary, Charles, Laura, Rufus, and Susie. You can look her up at Rootsweb in the World Connect section. She is listed by a lot of people!
Her grandparents listed were: Johannes Spach, born Nov. 1762, and Catherine Lang.

Lois, I do thank you so much for sending the information about the Mrs. James. I will look at the websites and hopefully have some of the descendants view the picture. Thank you again. Lena Stone Criswell
