Photo Details

This photograph was found in an antique shop in Maine in 1991. It reads on the blank in ink:Jane "Spach" James, mother of the James Brothers and sisters - Molly-Laura-Susie" Grandmother - Mabel, Lottie, Robah Howard - and in ) by each the name: Walker.
There was something written in pencil under the ink - looks like Walker is one of the names in pencil.Pencil has been erased.

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.

Lena Criswell 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
