Rachel's Photos

This is a picture that was hanging in my mother's grandparent's house, called the Boone House, I believe in Roanoke, VA. What I can make of the photo, painting, or sketch, is a young indian lady, with a feather in her hair, two long braids, and wearing what may be traditional indian clothing. I believe its very old, maybe from the 1800s. If its a painting, it may have been done by Rosa Boone, my great great grandmother, who was a talented painter, a self portrait, or maybe even one of her mother or one of her daughters.
