Born in 1849, she died at age 66 (yes, so young!). Although obviously ill in this photo, there seems to be such determination in her face and posture.

Looks like a portrait of one of my aunts by marriage.

Poor lady! She looks much older than 66, but she also looks so frail. ndshe's in a wheelchair, so she must have been sickly, maybe even with something that is treatable nowadays.

66 was not necessarily young then. Wonderful treasure!

Is that handle by her hand a part of the chain next to the wheelchair? It looks like she could turn those and make the chair move. A pre cursor to a motorized wheelchair.

My aunt by marriage is not the woman in the photo but I dare say a direct descendant of my mom's family and almost a century later my Mom married my dad and my and Gaye my dad's brother Mark.

They worked hard and when they got sick, sat until they died. We were born in an age of miracle drugs to keep us going. They prob drank a lot to deal with their ills.

What did she die from ( if I may ask ) ? It was the age of consumption and so many left their loved ones way to soon . 😢

Carol Neuner-Moore oh she is beautiful, no question there. It's no doubt she had a hard life, though.

66 was NOT young in those days, it was elderly, in fact.

Beautiful Picture to be cherished! Based on this table, being born in 1849, and having survived until her 20th birthday, her life expectancy would have been 58.4 years.

I've been interested in Genealogy and Ancestry research for years now. I know from my research that many of my ancestors died well before their sixties and many children died in childhood. I just turned 75. My dad died at 62. My g'mother's sister's family of five died at ages: 58, 47, 15, 21, and 50. Not one reached 60.

For an American born in 1850, 66 years was considerably longer than the average life span of that era.

Poor thing looks like she’s at least 20 yrs older. Life was not kind to her.
